Stephen Hill is wanted on recall to prison

Stephen Hill, 32, was wanted in connection with a reign of terror that saw dozens of Corby's pubs and clubs raided by the so-called bandit burglars over several months last year. Crimestoppers offered a £1,000 reward for anyone who could help find him.

After several appeals in this newspaper he was eventually found hiding on the town's Lincoln estate and admitted one of those burglaries at a court hearing in June. He was found not guilty of three other incidents.

He was jailed for 32 months but had already served seven months on remand after being arrested in December 2018.

Hill was released to an address outside of Corby two weeks ago.

But now police say he is once again wanted on recall to prison for breaching the terms of his release.

He already had several similar previous convictions including a string of burglaries and thefts from the past decade.

Anyone who spots Stephen Hill, formerly of Gainsborough Road, or knows of his whereabouts should call police on 101 or on 999 if it is an emergency.
