Most wanted criminals in the Black Country

Murder, robbery and burglary – these are just some of the crimes that the Black Country's most wanted are being hunted down for by West Midlands Police.

A gallery of the region's most wanted criminals displays those suspected of many serious offences, but who are yet to be caught.

Detectives continue to search for a key suspect wanted in connection with the murder of 24-year-old Mansoor Mahmood, who was stabbed to death in Brierley Hill's High Street back in October.

He is 19-year-old Niron Parker-Lee from the Brierley Hill area of Dudley.

A murder inquiry was launched after Mr Mahmood was found on the High Street at around 4.45pm on Saturday, October 15 and later died in hospital.

DI Harry Harrison, from homicide, said: “It’s important we locate Niron Parker-Lee as soon as possible and I would urge anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact us.

“Someone knows where this man is and I’d remind them that harbouring a wanted man is a criminal offence and you may also face prosecution.“

Parker-Lee is described as dangerous. He should not be approached by members of the public. Any sightings of him should be reported to police immediately on 999.

Police also continue to hunt for 34-year-old Damian Hill, wanted in connection to a robbery at Costcutters on Wynall Lane, Wollescote on December 20 at about 10.10pm.

Hill is described as white, medium build and 5ft 9ins tall. He has green eyes, short brown hair and has a Midlands accent.

He has pierced ears, and a number of tattoos including ‘666’ on his neck 'Kylan 7/7/07' above a Bulldog on his right arm and 'Kerrie' on right wrist.

He has connections to Stourbridge, Brierley Hill, Cradley, Halesowen, Oldbury and Handsworth.

A number of attempts have been made to locate Hill, but officers are asking the public's help to find him.

If you have any information call 101.

Also wanted for questioning is Derick Copeland following a burglary at Goldthorn Park in Wolverhampton last November.

Copeland, aged 55, has links to Coalpool, Walsall, Perry Barr, Handsworth and Wolverhampton. He is described as a black and 5ft 9ins tall.

A number of attempts have been made to locate Copeland, but police want the public's help.

Police are looking to find a man in connection with a number of thefts from elderly women on bus journeys.

Daniel Glowacki, aged 35, is wanted by both West Midlands Police and London’s Metropolitan Police in connection with several thefts from elderly women's bags on bus journeys.

It concerns around 20 alleged offences across Sandwell, Dudley and London over a long period of time. National Express West Midlands is offering a reward for anyone with information.

Tony Dallison, head of security at the bus company, said: “These thefts target elderly women using the bus and we are determined to put a stop to it.

“So we are offering a substantial amount to anyone who gives us information that leads to a conviction for these particularly despicable crimes.”

A man wanted in connection with a distraction burglary in Wolverhampton is still being sought after another man's arrest.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Johnny Connors, 20, is urged to come forward.

If you can help police with their searches, call 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
