Police hunt convicted Ribbleton robber on the run from prison
Police are appealing again for information about a convicted robber on the run in Preston.
Ryan Walch, 26, of Acacia Road, Ribbleton, was jailed for robbery for five years in March 2009 but was released on licence from prison – but has failed to keep to the conditions.
DC Rachel Wilson said; “I would urge people to be vigilant and report any sightings to police. Any details the public may have could be crucial.
“We strongly believe that Walch is in the Preston area, so I would appeal to people in Preston and the surrounding areas, if they think they have seen him, have been contacted by him or have any information that might help us locate him, to contact police.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling the new non emergency number, 101. Alternatively, people with information can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
