Bradford police hunt for pair who are in breach of licence
Warrants have been issued for the arrest of two Bradford men who have breached the conditions of their licence on release from prison.
Convicted criminals Bahader Ali Khan and Peter Firth will be returned to jail once found by police.
Officers have been making inquiries in an attempt to track the men down and are now appealing for the public’s help.
Khan, who is known to frequent West Bowling, was jailed for two years in March, 2011, for a burglary at a house in the Bankfoot area. The 22-year-old is also wanted in connection with allegations of harassment, said a police spokesman.
Firth, 32, has connections in Bradford city centre and the Halifax area. He was jailed for 18 months in November 2011 for a burglary at a house in Odsal, Bradford.
Inspector Alan Rhees-Cooper, of the Queensbury, Royds and Wibsey neighbourhood policing team, said: “These two men have breached the conditions of their prison licence and have been recalled to prison.
“If they are not prepared to adhere to these strict guidelines then they must be brought to justice. We have undertaken numerous enquiries to locate each of them and officers are fully briefed as to their descriptions.
“Members of the public, however, can assist in our efforts to return them to jail and I would call on anyone who has seen them or has information, to contact us immediately. These men have been previously sentenced to burglary offences in the Bankfoot and Odsal areas of Bradford.
“If they are prepared to ignore their probation terms, then they must be removed from our streets and away from the potential of further crime.”
Anyone who has seen Khan or Firth, has information that could lead to their arrest, or who knows where they are, can call police on 101 or ring Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
