Reward of £1,000 offered after rapist goes on the run from Lincolnshire prison
Lincolnshire Police says a reward of up to £1,000 is being offered for any information that leads to the arrest of convicted rapist Stephen Tierney, 39, who has absconded from prison.
The information is to be given through the anonymous charity, CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111, or reported online at crimestoppers-uk.org
Tierney absconded from North Sea Camp on Wednesday, July 3, and officers are investigating potential sightings in Norfolk, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire. Tierney has links to all of these areas.
Tierney poses a risk to the public who are advised not to approach him. He also poses a high risk to anyone who enters into a relationship with him.
Officers are urging Tierney to hand himself in immediately and advise that anyone found to be assisting Tierney to evade capture will be subject to prosecution. This carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison.
Police say they would like to thank the public for their excellent response so far and encourage anyone with information to contact CrimeStoppers without delay.
