A man who stole from a high-end car in Deepdale is being sought after breaking a court order.


Preston Police have released a picture of Robert Lee Irvine.

The 38-year-old was involved in a theft from a Mercedes car in Lovat Road in October last year.

He failed to comply with the post-sentence supervision order in March.

Sergeant Scott Archer said: “It’s important that we find Irvine and so I would urge anyone who has seen him or knows of his whereabouts to contact us as soon as possible.

“I would advise members of the public not to approach him but to instead call the police.”

Police say he may be gaunt in appearance and sometimes uses the name Andrew.

Aside from Preston, he also has links to Leyland, Middlesbrough and Darlington.
