POLICE are searching for a Leeds man in connection with money laundering and drugs offences.

Detectives from British Transport Police are keen to trace Ashley Perks, 28, in relation to charges of possessing criminal property and also of drugs possession.

Perks failed to appear at court over the offences and is also on recall to prison after his licence was revoked for previous convictions.

Officers had previously attempted to arrest him at his home address but he ran away from police.

Det Cons Penny Halliwell said: “We have made numerous attempts to locate Perks, who was last seen in the Bradford area, but to no avail.

“He has links to the London, Liverpool and Middlesbrough areas so it may be that he has travelled.

“If you know his current whereabouts then please contact us.”

Anyone with information can contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
