Police are appealing for information to assist in locating a man who is currently unlawfully at large.
30 year-old Ray Lee, was charged by police in May 2021 in relation to numerous fraud offences and is currently on remand pending crown court trial. Lee is believed to be the lead member of an organised crime gang involved in targeting the elderly and vulnerable in a series of frauds in which he purported to be a police officer in order to convince the victims to hand over cash and jewellery. Over 40 victims reported losses to police to the value of over £200,000. He is described as being approximately 5’9” tall, is of slim build and has brown eyes and brown hair.
He was granted compassionate bail to attend a funeral in Dublin in August but failed to return as required to HMP Maghaberry, on Thursday 24th August.
