Detectives in West Yorkshire are trying to trace a man in connection with a conspiracy to supply Class A drugs throughout the North.

Stuart Horsfield, 41, was arrested in July under Operation Stet, an investigation which led to 50 kilos of drugs with a street value of more than £5m and almost £150,000 in cash being seized.

Police had investigated the importation, distribution and supply of drugs in and out of Bradford to Greater Manchester and South Yorkshire.

Horsfield was bailed until October but failed to return to police station. His last address is in Doncaster and despite extensive enquiries he has not been located.

Detectives have released Horsfield’s photograph in a bid to locate him and believe he still has contacts in Yorkshire. Det Insp Noel Devine from West Yorkshire Police’s crime division said: “We have made extensive searches to find Horsfield.”

Two people have been jailed as part of Operation Stet, 16 others face charges and a trial will start next month. Anyone who has seen Horsfield or knows his whereabouts contact police on 0845 60 60 606 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
