Hunt Goes On For Wanted York Man

Police 7

9:46am 4th July 2014

Shaun Michael Barker, 36, is wanted as he has failed to comply with the terms of his release licence.

He was sentenced to 12 months in prison in 2013, for possessing an offensive weapon. He was released from prison on Friday 2 May 2014.

Barker is described as being white, 6ft 2in tall, with a medium build and brown hair.

Although his whereabouts are unknown, it is believed that Barker is in the York area.

Detective Inspector Graeme Wright, of York CID, said:

“Shaun, if you see or hear this appeal, you need to know that we are going to find you and return you to prison. We have an established record of locating people who wrongly believe they can remain at liberty. By remaining at large you are only making the inevitable outcome worse for yourself."

“I am also asking anyone who sees Shaun Barker to contact the police straight away."

Detective Inspector Wright added:

“Officers have already visited a number of addresses where barker is believed to have links. These visits will continue until he is back in custody."


“If you are shielding Barker from the police you need to know that you are not helping him. In fact you are only making matters worse. You also need to know that you maybe committing offences yourself. If this is the case you face the prospect of arrest and prosecution.”

Anyone who can help locate Shaun Barker should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1 and pass the details to the Force Control Room.

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference number 12140103028.
