Cale Breeze, 23, of no fixed address was seen to be acting suspiciously by plain-clothed police officers on Tuesday, December 11 in East Park, Crawley.

Officers suspected he could have been setting up a drugs deal and decided to conduct a person search, where seven bags of cannabis, £200 in cash and a knife were recovered.

Breeze, a family careworker, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to supply a class B drug and the possession of a knife blade or sharp pointed article in a public place.

He appeared at Lewes Crown after an earlier guilty plea to all of the offences and was given a 14 month custodial sentence.

Investigating officer Seb Day said:

“Thanks to the vigilant police officers on the ground a potential drug deal was stopped.

“This sentence reflects the severity of this offence and shows our robust action to tackle this behaviour.

“Our message to those who carry a knife or thinking of carrying a knife is that it does not protect you and could actually make you more vulnerable and in danger of serious harm.”

Police have launched an urgent appeal and offered a reward of up to £5,000 for information leading to the capture of Jordan Charles.

Charles has links to Crawley and Bexhill in East Sussex as well as Croydon in South London.

The appeal for anonymous information has been launched to urgently find 23-year-old Jordan Charles, who is wanted for questioning over a series of violent incidents in Sussex.  

A string of offences in recent months includes: violence and robbery; threatening revellers with a knife in Brighton; using racist and homophobic language; spitting saliva and blood at police; ransacking a takeaway in Crawley and attacking a customer; attacking staff at another Crawley restaurant with a glass and a metal chain dog lead wrapped around his hand; punching and kicking a woman to the floor outside a nightclub; assaulting a 12-year-old girl who had come to the aid of her mother and aunt during a parking dispute.

He has also failed to appear in court.

Jordan Charles is black, about 5’ 9″, of medium build and with black hair. He is known to have links to Crawley, and is thought to still frequent the area.

Glenys Balchin, Crimestoppers Regional Manager said:

“This man must be found before anyone else comes to harm, which is why we are making an urgent appeal to the public in Sussex, Surrey and south London to help find his location. Jordan Charles is dangerous and the allegations against him are serious.
 
“It is important to remind people that assisting somebody wanted for questioning over a crime can lead to prosecution. We are appealing to anybody who may know the whereabouts of Jordan Charles to urgently tell our charity what you know 100% anonymously. Always. You can call our UK Contact Centre, which is open 24/7, on freephone number 0800 555 111 or you can use our simple and secure anonymous online form.
