Police arrest wanted man Jack Walters in Littlehampton

17 Feb, 2017 17:32 News

On Friday afternoon (17 February) police successfully detained a wanted man after he was traced to Littlehampton.

Jack Walters, 22, of no fixed address, had been jailed for two years three months on 4 September 2015, following a conviction for malicious wounding.

He was released on licence on 27 September last year but subsequently breached the conditions of that licence, leading to a warrant for his arrest being issued on Friday, 10 February.

Following information that Walters was in a flat in Littlehampton police contained the property until he could be arrested.

As part of the operation police deployed armed officers, a helicopter and dog unit.

Inspector Marc Clothier, of the Arun Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "We were able to detain Walters shortly before 3.30pm.

"Clearly it was a high profile operation and police would like to thank members of the local community for their help, support and understanding in bringing this incident to a safe and successful conclusion."
