Wanted man Joey Akehurst arrested on Thursday

Thanks to an eagle-eyed member of the public, police officers were directed to Grove Road in Lingfield, where they arrested 40-year-old Joey Akehurst and further charged him with burglary, receiving stolen goods, using a motor vehicle without insurance, driving other than in accordance with a licence and attempted burglary.

Police had taken the unusual step of offering a reward for information leading to his arrest.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Staines Magistrates’ Court on Friday (28th April).

A warrant was issued for Akehurst, from Oxted in Surrey, on 28th February when he failed to appear at Lewes Crown Court to answer charges of burglary at Maresfield and Crowborough in February and April 2016.
