Re-appeal for information to track down Lyndon Stein

We’re appealing for further information to find a man who is wanted by a number of police forces across the country in connection with armed robberies.

Lyndon Stein, who is 49 years old, absconded from HMP Springhill in Aylesbury on April 29.

Police across the country are looking for Stein (pictured) who this week targeted a Santander bank in St Helens town centre.

Steins robbery spree started at a hair salon in Cheshire on April 30. On May 5 he struck again, this time at Thomas Cook in Clifton in Bristol before making his way to Gloucestershire where he targeted the Leeds and Holbrook building society on May 7.

A further robbery occurred at around 2.30pm on Thursday May 9. Stein entered the Britannia building society in Fishpond, Bristol and made off with a substantial amount of money.

He then made his way to Warrington on May 15, targeting Co-op Store in Park Road South, Newton le Willows on the same day moving on to Lloyds TSB and Thomas Cook in Makerfield, Cheshire.

On May 24 he entered the supermarket Heron Newton le Willows and demanded cash from staff with what they believed was a weapon. He made off with several thousand pounds.

He then moved to Avon and Somerset the following day where he threatened staff at Santander in Gloucestershire and Thomas Cook on the High Street in Kingswood.

His crime spree is thought to have totalled thousands of pounds.

We’d like to speak to Stein (pictured in one of his most recent robberies) or anyone who knows where he is. He is described as white, of a stocky build and normally carries a plastic carrier bag when committing these offences.

Anyone with information about Stein or where he may be is asked to call your local police force on 101.
