Absconded prisoner Conlon Carr being hunted by Police


Police in Edinburgh are currently investigating after a man made off from G4S security officers.

Conlon Carr, 19, was being brought to St Leonards Police Station from HMP Polmont YOI at around 11.35am on Tuesday 12th December when he was able to break free.

A significant search of the St Leonards and Arthur’s Seat area is being undertaken to trace Carr, with various resources being utilised.

He is described as white 5ft 5ins tall with a slim build, mousey brown hair and wearing an orange t-shirt and grey jogging trousers.

Members of the public who think they may have seen Carr are asked not to approach him and should contact police.

Inspector Willie Falconer from Howdenhall Police Station said: “Conlon Carr is from the Edinburgh area and may look to attend at the home of family and friends and so anyone who believes they have seen him should come forward immediately.

“In addition, anyone with any further information relevant to this ongoing inquiry is also asked to get in touch.”

The teenager was traced around 2.25pm in the Craigmillar Castle area of Edinburgh.
