A CHARITY is offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest of a wanted Carlisle man.

Crimestoppers is offering a £1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Paul Gillan, 37, from Carlisle.

He is wanted by police in connection to a number of incidents involving domestic violence and stalking. He is also wanted for an outstanding recall to prison for breaching his release conditions where he was serving a sentence for a previous serious assault.

Gary Murray, North West regional manager at Crimestoppers, said: “We are appealing to anybody with any information on the whereabouts of Paul Gillan to do the right thing and to tell our charity what you know, 100 per cent anonymously.

“It’s extremely important that he is arrested and returned to prison and that is why we are offering this reward and putting Mr Gillan on our Most Wanted website.

“Since our charity was formed over 32 years ago, we have always kept our promise of anonymity to the millions of people who have trusted us and every day more than 1,000 contact us online and on the phone.”

Mr Murray added: “You can speak to us anonymously by calling our UK Contact Centre which is open 24/7 on freephone 0800 555 111 or you can use our simple and secure anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

“Nobody will know you contacted us, only you.”

Information passed to police directly does not qualify for the reward.

Only information passed to Crimestoppers via the freephone number or the anonymous online form qualifies for the reward.

Around 10 people are arrested and charged every day as a result of information given to Crimestoppers.

Since the charity began in 1988 it has received more than 2.8 million actionable calls and more than 149,000 arrests and charges have been made as a result.
