THIS is the face of a man being sought by Surrey police in connection with an armed robbery and a string of house burglaries.

James George Cumming, aged 35, is wanted for questioning in relation to an armed robbery at the Halifax Bank in Farnborough in June last year.

Officers also want to quiz him about 23 other offences of house burglary in Camberley and other parts of Surrey.

They believe he has been staying in both the Aldershot-Farnborough area and London.

Surrey police are offering what they describe as a "substantial reward" for information leading to his arrest.

Anyone who recognises Cumming is warned not to approach him. "We believe he is dangerous," said Detective Chief Inspector Martin Parker, who is leading the hunt.

Cumming is described as white, about 6ft tall, of medium build with dark brown greying hair, blue eyes, and a one-inch scar over his left eye.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 01306 676826 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
