A crook’s life on the run came to an abrupt end on Monday, when he was caught in the act by two police officers.

PCSO Hayley Jameson and Pc Helen Jones from Heaton and Gooshays Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT), were patrolling the Briar Road Estate, Harold Hill, when they spotted a man chasing another man.

They entered into a pursuit and made an arrest but one of the men gave false details.

But when he was brought to the station, he was fingerprinted and his true identity was quickly discovered.

Officers found that Adrian Siwak, 30, of no fixed abode, was wanted for 14 offences including burglary and robbery in Poland.

An extradition warrant will now be arranged through the courts, and he will be deported back to Poland to answer charges there.

“I was really chuffed with the two officers,” said Harold Wood, Heaton and Gooshays SNT supervisor, Sgt Jenny Moore.

“They got stuck straight into it.”
