Suffolk: Appeal stepped up for wanted man

An appeal has been stepped up for a man deemed by police to be one of Suffolk’s most wanted individuals.

William Cassidy is sought in connection with a robbery in Ipswich in February 2009.

He and another man test-drove an Audi Quattro with the supposed intention of buying, but then stole the vehicle by dragging the owner out of the car, before driving it away.

Cassidy was arrested and charged and pleaded guilty to the offence at Ipswich Crown Court in November 2010, however, he failed to appear for sentencing after the judge indicated he would face imprisonment.

A warrant for his arrest was issued in January.

The 32-year-old is described as white, approximately 5’2” tall, skinny build with a small face and drawn features. At the time he was arrested he also had a faint moustache.

His last known address was in Hayes, Middlesex but he does have links within Ipswich and police believe he still frequents here, as well as other areas of Suffolk.
