Police appeal to trace man on run in Dorset
5:59pm Monday 14th January 2013 in Latest
POLICE want the public's help in tracing a 'dangerous' man who has gone on the run after breaching his licence conditions.
Lee Ivan James Hogben, 29, was jailed last February for stealing a council refuse lorry from a depot in Dorchester and smashing into police cars in a 70mph chase across the county.
Hogben, from Poole, was released under licence last Friday but has breached conditions by not going to live at an address in Somerset so has been recalled to prison.
Police are advising members of the public not to approach Hogben if they see him. They should call the police immediately on 999.
Detective Inspector Neil Phillips, from Dorset Police's Offender Management Unit, said: “Officers are continuing to search for Lee Hogben and we are following positive lines of enquiry.
“We need to trace him urgently and I would encourage any member of the public to contact the police immediately if they see him.
“Hogben should not be approached under any circumstance if seen as he is considered dangerous.”
Hogben is described as a white man around 6ft tall, of broad build and has short cropped brown hair which is gelled in a side parting. He was last seen wearing a dark blue sports type jacket, dark trousers and carrying a black sports bag.
