Newquay Robber Wanted
6:03am 4th December 2014
Wanted - a Newquay robber - facing jail.
Alex Shirley has been sentenced to more than five years behind bars.
But police can not find the 27 year old.
Known as "Scouse Jay" he was convicted of robbery at Truro Crown Court in September and handed a suspended sentence.
But, in November, the Court of Appeal overturned that and ordered him to be jailed for 5 years and 5 months.
Police say they intend to arrest him once he is located.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Alex Shirley is a white man aged 27 years, 5’7” tall with cropped black hair.
"He is known locally as 'scouse Jay'.
"He resides in Newquay but also has links to Liverpool.
"Police are asking for information to locate him and if anyone either sees him or knows of his current whereabouts then please contact police on 101 quoting police reference 755 271114 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."
