Those halcyon days when pen and paper just worked!

Police are hunting this man who failed to answer bail on burglary and drugs charges.

Philip Peter Fried, 31, from Waterlooville, is suspected of committing four burglaries in the Waterlooville and Havant areas. He's also wanted for failing to appear in relation to drugs and traffic offences.

Detective Constable Gavin Whiteley said: 'These are serious offences and we are keen to track Fried down to progress our investigation. Our enquiries indicate that he is on the south coast of England, most probably either still here in Hampshire or across the border in Sussex.

'We would ask that members of the public look carefully at the photo and to get in touch with us if they believe they have seen Fried, or have any information about him that could lead to his whereabouts. Please do not approach him, but call the police as soon as possible.'

Anyone with information should contact police on 0845 045 45 45 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
