Week Of Action Shows Crime Doesnt Pay

Tuesday, 03 February, 2009

Criminals have been hit were it hurts during a week of action in West
Yorkshire, which has seen, cash, cars and assets seized by police.

Officers have been working along side the Serious Organised Crime Agency
(SOCA) HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and other asset recovery agents in
order to disrupt criminals and seize their assets which they have got
through ill gotten gains.

From Monday 26th January officers from across the force area executed 35
warrants at addresses in West Yorkshire and 30 people were arrested in
connection with drugs, money laundering and fraud offences. Officers also
seized £220, 000 in cash, high value vehicles worth approximately £600, 000
and drugs with an estimated street value of £1 million. This includes
Heroin, Ecstasy, Cannabis, Amphetamine and Crack ****.

The week of action aimed to raise awareness of powers available in order to
seize assets from criminals and to take positive action against those who
are living lavish lifestyles with no legitimate means of income.

Detective Chief Superintendent Howard Crowther, West Yorkshire Police’s
Head of Crime Division said: “The results seen during the week of action
has shown that criminals are really being hit where it hurts in West
Yorkshire.

“We’re not going to stop there though; we will continue to take cash, cars,
houses and any other assets criminals have in order to put them out of
business, because why should they be allowed to live off the proceeds of
crime.

“West Yorkshire Police would like local communities to also ask that
question, why should they (criminals) be allowed to live off their ill
gotten gains at the expense of others?

“Its important that police, partner agencies and local communities work
together and show criminals that they can not carry on living off the
proceeds of crime and at the expense of others.”

Gerry Smyth, North East Head of Investigations for the Serious Organised
Crime Agency SOCA said: “The positive action taken against criminals in
West Yorkshire should serve as a warning, that we will not tolerate
negative role models living within local communities.

“By working with our partners we have been able to use all the powers
available to us and have seized assets linked with criminality.

“We will continue our work to take the cash out of crime.”

There are other criminals within your communities living off the proceeds
of crime, Why Should They? Ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, that’s all
it takes. For further details visit www.whyshouldthey.com.

Be on the look out for a white Ford Mondeo, possibly an L registration.
This vehicle has been seen around Featherstone for the last week with between 3 and 4 occupants. It has been seen driving around at high speed and running several red lights.
The vehicle mounted the curb last Saturday to pass the red light waiting traffic and drove past and through.
The vehicle has also been seen late at night parked up at shops just before they shut. One incident this week resulted in the car following employees home.
These incidents have not yet come through the police system. I believe them to be serious enough to make people aware ASAP.
Please contact the police if you notice a suspicious car like this.

PLEASE SEE WEST YORKSHIRE POLICE WEB SITE FOR VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPH OF PETER
MCDONAGH


Missing High Risk Sex Offender - Updated

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Police have now released CCTV footage and another image of 44 year old
Peter McDonagh, a registered sex offender, who went missing from a West
Yorkshire Hostel on February 11th.

McDonagh is a danger to the public, in particular to women and possibly a
danger to himself.

If seen, McDonagh should not be approached and the public are urged to call
999, the incident room on 01274 373 737 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

Speaking at a Press Conference today Detective Superintendent Paul Taylor
said:

"Peter McDonagh, 44, is a registered sex offender who went missing from a
West Yorkshire hostel on 11 February, 2009.

"I can now tell you that Mr McDonagh is also wanted in connection with the
murder of Michaela Hague, who was stabbed to death in Sheffield on 5
November, 2001.

"We are obviously keen to trace Mr McDonagh, as we believe he may have
vital information in respect of that murder enquiry

"Mr McDonagh was released from prison in September 2008 to a hostel in West
Yorkshire following an eight-year sentence for a knifepoint **** committed
in the Holbeck area of Leeds in 2002.

"He also has previous convictions for offences committed in York and
Ireland.

"In 2001, he was convicted of the false imprisonment of a woman, for which
he received a two year sentence and in 1997 he indecently assaulted a hitch
hiker he had picked up.

"After his release from prison in 2008 Mr McDonagh was in hostel
accommodation and under supervision. Prior to his disappearance he was
compliant with the conditions, which included a night curfew and regularly
visits by police and Probation. We understand he had a minor dispute with
staff at the hostel shortly before his disappearance.

"When he left the hostel he left behind medication, and without this his
behaviour is likely to become more unpredictable.

"He is considered a danger to the public, particularly to women, and may
also be a danger to himself.

"Extensive enquiries have been made to trace Mr McDonagh since February 11,
when he went missing and there have been positive sightings of him outside
Manchester Piccadilly Station (8.20-8.30pm 11 Feb) where he took a taxi to
Carlisle. He is believed to have stayed overnight in Carlisle before
travelling to Aberdeen by train, arriving there at around midday.

"The last confirmed sighting of him is in Aberdeen.

"When he left the hostel at 6pm on February 11th, he was wearing a black
parka-style jacket and stone coloured trousers, which we know he was
wearing when he was sighted in Carlisle.

"He is described as white, 5ft 11ins tall, stocky, with a full, long beard
and moustache. He wears glasses and speaks with an Irish accent.

"Enquiries are being carried out in Aberdeen and in other areas of Scotland
to trace Mr McDonagh, and an incident room staffed by officers from West
Yorkshire and South Yorkshire Police has been set up.

"If members of the public see him, they should not approach him but ring
999, the incident room on 01274 373737 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. "
