Convicted burglar ends manhunt
A CONVICTED burglar who failed to turn up at court has handed himself in.
Richard Ashman, 25, of Poppy Field, Lychpit, was found guilty of conspiracy to burgle on Thursday, June 14, by a jury at Winchester Crown Court.
He did not attend the court to hear the verdict. A warrant was issued for his arrest and police made a public appeal to find him.
Vicky O’Hare, corporate communications officer at Hampshire Constabulary, said Ashman handed himself in at Winchester Crown Court this morning.
