North Yorkshire Police’s appeal to find a wanted man last night has been successful.
Joseph Derek Bailey was arrested this morning, after being tracked down in Sheffield
Mr Bailey was wanted after he failed to appear in court in relation to his failure to comply with an interim notification requirement issued following his conviction for a sexual offence and the commissioning of a further offence while on a suspended sentence.
On 7 March 2019, York Crown Court issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Joseph Derek Bailey, 22, previously from Scarborough but more recently living in Sheffield. He also has connections to York and Selby.
North Yorkshire Police have thanked the public for their assistance with our appeal.
