Wanted: Spalding man skipped court in drug dealing trial

Lincolnshire Police are searching for Mitchell Ede (aka Jones) after he failed to appear in court charged with drug dealing offences.

Lincoln Crown Court issued a warrant for his arrest after the 24-year-old from the Spalding area failed to appear before Judge Pini on December 19, 2017.

He was awaiting a sentence for charges of assault and possession with intent to supply class B controlled drugs, police said.

Ede was also on trial in 2015 for assault by beating, assaulting a constable and possession with intent to supply class B controlled drugs.

He was then sentenced on March 7, 2016, but breached a court order and was brought back for re-sentencing in December 2017 — which is the court date he missed.

Anyone with any information that could assist the police with their enquiries should contact them through 101. It can also be reported through the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online .
