POLICE are hunting a man who made off from a campsite without paying.

Officers investigating the scam in Osmington believe the man could strike again.

On June 24 the wanted man left the campsite at Osmington Mills without paying an outstanding bill.

He has been described as white, aged in his sixties, about six feet tall and of big build. He was wearing glasses, has grey hair and a tattoo on his left forearm with the name Lynn on it.

Police Sergeant Rachel Goodwin, of Dorchester police, said: “On his arrival the man stated that he is from the East end of London and he did not have enough money to pay straight away.

“He was allowed to stay at the location but then failed to pay the outstanding amount before he left.

“I believe that this man specifically targets Bed and Breakfast establishments and I would like to make local proprietors aware of this incident.

“I urge anyone who has information about the current whereabouts of this man to contact Dorset Police as soon as possible.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 25:195. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
