A CONVICTED burglar is wanted for recall to prison after failing to comply with conditions set by the probation service.

Craig James Hayler, 28, who is not local, is believed to be staying at various hotels and bed and breakfasts in Sussex seaside towns including Hastings, and may possibly book in with false details.

He is 5’ 10” tall and of slim build, with brown eyes and short brown hair.

Hayler was sentenced to six months imprisonment in Cyprus for burglaries there in 2012, and was repatriated to the UK to serve his sentence.

He was being supervised by the Probation Service in Southampton after his release on licence but failed to keep appointments.

They have therefore requested his arrest and return to prison to continue serving his sentence.

PC Dan Cloake said; “He is not believed to be a danger to the public but anyone who has seen him recently, or has any information about his whereabouts, should contact Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 0167 of 03/07. You can also call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 1111.”
