POLICE are appealing for the public's help to find a thief from Swindon.

Gareth Fanning is wanted for multiple thefts.

The 34-year-old is described as white, of slim build, around 5ft 7ins tall, with dark brown hair and brown eyes.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: "If you see Gareth then please do not approach him, but call us immediately on 999, providing us with a description of what he is wearing, anything he is carrying and his direction of travel.

"If you have information which could assist with our enquiries then please call our non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."

This appeal is part of the force’s Wanted this Winter campaign which has been re-launched to help find the county's most wanted suspects.

Over the coming weeks, Wiltshire Police will be identifying a number of people they want to speak to about various offences.

Superintendent Adrian Burt said: "We know Christmas is a time of joy and celebrations, but the harsh reality is that there are victims of crime out there who desperately want to see justice done and will only be able to enjoy the festive season when they know their offender has been arrested.”
