A Watford-linked man is wanted on recall to prison.

Richard Moore, also known as James Stutter, is a wanted man, Herts Police confirmed this morning (November 20).

The force added that he is “known to frequent the Hemel Hempstead and Watford areas of Hertfordshire and the Luton and Bedford areas of Bedfordshire”.

Currently wanted on recall to prison, the 31-year-old had been jailed for six months in December 2020 after being described by police as a “prolific” shoplifter.

At the time, a member of the case investigation team had said that “Moore is well known to local officers and showed brazen disregard for the law when he repeatedly stole from local businesses”.
