Man on the run after £14k pub theft

A warrant was issued yesterday (January 10) for the arrest of a 34 year old South Wales man who denies stealing £14,755 from a company that runs a pub in Cheltenham.

Steven Holmes, of Cae Bracla, Bridgend, has pleaded not guilty to a charge that between 6th July 2017 and 29th January 2018 he stole £14,755 belonging to the Dodo Pub company.

The firm run the Bottle of Sauce pub in Albion Street in Cheltenham as well as two other pubs in Oxford.

He is due to stand jury trial at Gloucester crown court on 11th February this year.

However, today, Mr Holmes lawyer, Lloyd Jenkins, told Judge Michael Cullum: "We are currently without instructions.

"He appears to have vanished and all contact with him has ceased."

Judge Cullum said he would issue a warrant for the arrest of Mr Holmes in order to progress the case further.
