Hunt for sus­pect ex­tends to Europe

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE man po­lice are hunt­ing in con­nec­tion with the mur­der of Josh Han­son has made Bri­tain’s most wanted fugi­tives list and could be hid­ing in the Nether­lands.

De­tec­tives ur­gently need to trace Shane O’Brien, 27, of Lad­broke Grove with a £10,000 re­ward avail­able for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to his ar­rest and pros­e­cu­tion.

O’Brien has been added to the list by Crimestop­pers and the Na­tional Crime Agency un­der Op­er­a­tion Re­turn, a cam­paign with the full co-op­er­a­tion of the Dutch au­thor­i­ties to track down peo­ple be­lieved to be hid­ing in the Nether­lands.

De­tec­tive Chief In­spec­tor Noel McHugh, from the Met’s Homi­cide and Ma­jor Crime Com­mand, said: “We be­lieve O’Brien could be in the Nether­lands, al­though our en­quiries con­tinue in sev­eral other Euro­pean coun­tries at this stage.

“There is a Euro­pean Ar­rest War­rant out for O’Brien and we hope the launch of this new Crimestop­pers and NCA ap­peal will raise aware­ness and lead to his prompt ar­rest.”

O’Brien was also due to be fea­tured on the Dutch ver­sion of Crime­watch on Tues­day.

O’Brien is de­scribed as a white man, 6ft tall with grey eyes and short dark brown hair.

He has a tat­too on his back say­ing ‘Shan­non 15-04-06’ and may use the name Troy O’Brien.

He should not be ap­proached by mem­bers of the pub­lic.

Any sight­ings of him should be re­ported to po­lice im­me­di­ately on 999.
