AN Albanian national previously sentenced for cannabis farming is now wanted by police.

Cheshire Police officers are appealing for information from members of the public to help trace Ali Kaci.

The 22-year-old, originally from Albania, but now of Runcorn, is wanted by the force for breach of bail.

He is described as being white, of a proportionate build, with short brown hair and brown eyes, and he also has links to the Greater London area.

Anyone who sees Kaci, or has any information regarding his whereabouts, is asked to call Cheshire Police on 101, quoting 23000213484, or visit the website.

Information can also be reported online to Crimestoppers anonymously or by calling 0800 555 111.

Kaci was previously given 240 hours of unpaid work after abstracting electricity for a cannabis farm in Runcorn.

At Chester Crown Court last November, he was sentenced following the discovery of 111 cannabis plants at his home address on Bold Street during a raid.

He was sentenced to two years in prison suspended for two years, after pleading guilty to abstracting electricity and producing a class B drug, namely cannabis.
