A 53-YEAR-OLD man accused of drug dealing has been named on a most-wanted list.
Stephen Henry Pitman, from Chislehurst is accused of seven counts of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs. If convicted, he could face a life sentence.
Police also suspect him of seven counts of supplying a Class B drug, for which he could be jailed for up to 14 years. Pitman has a scar on his brow and on his right finger.
He was one of 10 suspects named on the Operation Captura most-wanted list, a multi-agency-organised campaign led by crime-fighting organisation Crimestoppers and the Serious Organised Crime Agency.
It was launched last Wednesday in Malaga, on Spain's Costa del Sol, where they believe the men could be hiding. The list includes some of the UK's most dangerous child offenders and rapists as well as drug dealers.
Director of operations Dave Cording said: "These appeals include some very nasty individuals and crimes and we need you, the public, to help us put them behind bars where they belong. Please don't approach these individuals as they are known to be dangerous but if you recognise them or know where they may be located please contact Crimestoppers immediately."
The full list can be seen online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the men can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. If people are calling from Spain there is a special freephone Spanish 900 555 111 telephone number which will be answered by Crimestoppers' call agents. A translation service is available on request.
