Police issue warning over fugitive robber

Have your say

A convicted robber on the run from prison in England could be in Northern Ireland, police have warned.

Police in Lancashire have been hunting for Patrick Joyce, 30, since March when he breached the terms of an early release licence.

That triggered a recall to prison, which he continues to evade.

Joyce, formerly of Morecambe, was jailed for six years with an extended licence period of five years at Isleworth Crown Court in September 2008 for a robbery in Southall, west London. He was released from jail in August 2010.

Lancashire Police said he has connections to both Middlesex and Northern Ireland, and speaks with an Irish accent.
