MEMBERS of the public have been warned not to approach a convicted drug dealer who is wanted by police.

Dean Hall, from Runcorn, is wanted by Cheshire Police on recall to prison.

The 24-year-old, who also has links to Warrington and St Helens, is described as being white and around 5ft6 with a slim build.

He has black hair and brown eyes, and the force has appealed for information on his whereabouts from residents.

A spokesman said: “Police are asking the public to help them trace a man from Runcorn who is wanted on recall to prison.

“As well as Runcorn, Dean Hall has links to Warrington and St Helens.

“Anyone who sees Hall is advised not to approach him but to instead call Cheshire Police as soon as possible.”

Hall was handed a three-year jail sentence in 2018 after he was caught dealing heroin and crack cocaine on the streets of Grimsby.

If you have information on his whereabouts, call 101 quoting incident number IML716039 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
