Viral Prodan, 48, was arrested for assaulting a bailiff and a police officer on June 7 2014 in Coventry Road, Ilford.

He was charged in connection with the incident and appeared at a magistrates’ court where he was granted court bail.

He subsequently failed to appear for trial at Southwark Crown Court on December 1 2014 and was convicted in his absence, receiving 10 months imprisonment.

Since then Prodan has been forensically linked to two burglaries, one which occurred on September 3 2014 in Hertford Road, Edmonton and another which occurred most recently, on Saturday, July 2 this year in Holcombe Road, Ilford.

Prodan is described as approximately 5ft 7ins tall , of a proportionate build, with hazel eyes and dark hair. He is believed to frequent the east London area.

Anyone with any information as to his whereabouts is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via crimestoppers-uk.org.
