Police are appealing for help tracing a man wanted for Peckham burglary and on recall to prison.
Mark Goldsmith, 55, is wanted by the Met after breaching his licensing conditions, and in connection with burglaries in Peckham; SE15, and in south west London.
Police say Goldsmith is one of twelve ‘high harm’ offenders the Met is issuing wanted appeals for throughout December. All are alleged to have a history of violent offences or are wanted in connection with violent crimes.
Superintendent Claire Smart, from the Met’s Violent Crime Taskforce, said: “With Christmas less than two weeks away, we are increasing our efforts to arrest these individuals and apprehend them for their crimes.
“Since July, we have arrested more than 850 high harm offenders and that number is steadily increasing.
“Our message is clear – we will not stop looking for you until you are arrested. Do the right thing and hand yourself in at your nearest police station to prevent Christmas being ruined for your family and friends. You won’t be able to evade justice forever.
“We are always carrying out arrest enquiries and bringing offenders to justice so that we can keep everyone safe, but we also need the help of the public.
“If you know where any of these offenders could be, or happen to see them while you are out and about then I urge you to pass any information to us as soon as possible.
“These offenders have caused harm and destruction and it is our priority to arrest them to prevent them from causing further damage.”
The public is advised to call police on 101 with any information or 999 in an emergency.
