UK officials have launched a plea for information after an Irish burglar escape from an open prison in Derbyshire.
Convicted burglar Miles Moorhouse absconded from HMP Sudbury open prison on June 9 and now Derbyshire Police are appealing for information about his whereabouts.
The 32-year-old, with a previous address in Dublin, was jailed at Isleworth Crown Court in 2018 for aggravated vehicle taking, three house burglaries and criminal damage.
A spokesman for Derbyshire Police asked people to contact them directly if they have information about Moorehouse.
“The 32-year-old has links to Bedford, London, Essex and Dublin and is described as being white, around 6ft tall with blue eyes, sandy brown hair and has an Irish accent, a spokesman for the police has said.”
In 2018, Moorehouse was arrested after a plain clothes officers from the West Area Pro-Active Unit responded to a call to a number of males trying to break into an address in the Norwood Green area.
Officers attended the location but the suspects had already fled the scene.
However, the team received a similar call to a second address nearby.
When they arrived they heard a house alarm so made their way towards it, only to discover several males loading goods into the back of a Black Audi S3.
On spotting the officers, the males attempted to escape in their vehicle, driving at speed past pedestrians and through red lights at a busy junction.
The suspects eventually abandoned their vehicle and made off on foot closely followed by the officers.
Three of the suspects were detained and arrested on suspicion of a number of burglary offences.
At Isleworth Crown Court on 20th November 2018, the defendants pleaded guilty to a number of offences of burglary, attempted burglary and aggravated vehicle taking.
