Suffolk: Appeal for county’s ‘most wanted’

A CRIME-FIGHTING charity has issued a new appeal for help in tracing Suffolk’s most wanted criminal.

Alfie Smith is being sought by Crimestoppers and Suffolk Constabulary in connection with dozens of crimes committed across the county between 2007 and 2010.

The offences include conspiracy to commit burglary and money laundering.

Crimestoppers has urged members of the public to give up information on the whereabouts of Smith, who is also wanted for recall to prison by Essex Police.

He is sought in connection with conspiracy to commit burglary and money laundering offences which were committed in the Babergh, St Edmundsbury and Mid Suffolk districts between May 2009 and February 2010.

Ann Scott, Crimestoppers eastern regional manager, said: “If you have any information on Alfie Smith, no matter how insignificant you feel it may be, you can give information to Crimestoppers 100% anonymously either online at or by calling 0800 555111.

“In the 23 years that the charity has been running no caller has ever been identified so we can guarantee that no one will know that you contacted us with information. We do not trace or record calls and callers do not have to go to court or give a statement to the Police.”

It is believed that Smith is responsible for a string of more than 70 offences ranging from burglaries of sheds and garages to farm outbuildings and business premises.

Stolen or cloned vehicles were used during the offences and items taken ranged from power tools and high-specification landscaping machinery to cash and cigarettes.
