A bogus vet who pleaded guilty to a number animal cruelty and fraud offences is being sought by Humberside Police after he failed to appear at court for sentencing.

Jayson Paul Wells, 30, of Driffield in the East Riding of Yorkshire, is wanted by detectives in Grimsby after he failed to appear at Grimsby Crown Court.

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) assisted Humberside Police with its original investigation and is publicising its appeal to help locate Mr Wells. Police believe that he may be trading as a herdsman in Nottingham or Cornwall and are keen to establish whether he is currently in either location.

Mr Wells was arrested on 2 October 2013 and charged with the following offences:

• Causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal between 1 October 2012 and 31 January 2013
• Causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal between 1 December 2012 and 1 January 2013
• Fraud by false representation between 1 September 2012 and 1 October 2012
• Fraud by false representation on 15 December 2012
• Fraud by false representation on 15 December 2012

Mr Wells pleaded guilty to all offences.

Anyone who is aware of his whereabouts is asked to call Humberside Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
