POLICE are appealing for help in identifying a man in connection with fraud offences. He may have links to West Drayton.

They are investigating 13 incidents where a man arranged to buy items for sale on Facebook Marketplace.

When meeting the sellers in person, the suspect uses a false driving licence and shows fake evidence of a bank transfer he says he's made to pay for the items.

The man then walks away, without paying the sellers, with the items in his possession.

Items taken include mobile phones, cameras and gaming equipment.

The suspect has given a false address in the West Drayton area and used the aliases Ben Hudson and Joshua Harris.

Officers have released this image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the offences.

Anyone who may know him can help by calling 101 quoting reference 5560/26APR. To remain anonymous, contact Crimestoppers online or call 0800 555 111.
