Police have dubbed a wanted man ‘the hide-and-seek champion of Paulsgrove’.
They posted a picture of the elusive Connor Gregory on Twitter on Saturday, in the hope of finally catching up with him.
This comes after officers from Kingston Police Station wrote an open letter to a female suspected of burglary, which went viral on social media.
In the letter to Tracey, they said: “We have a slight suspicion that you might be blanking us #Awkward. You don’t text, you don’t call back and haven’t accepted our friend request.”
Some accused the officers of shaming the woman, named Tracey Dake, while others commended the different approach to the appeal.
Police in Portsmouth say a prison cell awaits Mr Gregory, 24, although their brief message gave no details on why they want to trace him.
Officers asked people to retweet their message on Twitter to seek information about his whereabouts.
