Police issue mugshot of convicted sex offender wearing a GREGGS jumper as they ask for help to track him down

  • Police launched an appeal to find Shaun Aver who is wanted on recall to prison 
  • Aver, 36, has repeatedly breached his sex offender notification requirements 
  • He reportedly has links to Preston, Blackpool, Blackburn and Fleetwood 
  • Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact police 

Police have asked for help tracking down a convicted sex offender who wore a Greggs branded jumper in his mugshot.

Shaun Aver, 36, is wanted on recall to prison after repeatedly breaching his sex offender notification requirements after being convicted of sexual activity with a boy.

Aver, of Greater Manchester, has links to Preston, Blackpool, Blackburn and Fleetwood. He is of no fixed address and is required to register at the police station every seven days as part of his Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

He failed to do so and a warrant has now been issued for his arrest. Police have now issued an appeal on Facebook, urging anyone who knows of his whereabouts to contact them.

‘Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace a wanted man from the Bury area,’ a Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said today.

‘Shaun Aver is wanted on recall to prison. He is known to have links to the city centre, north Manchester, Preston and Cumbria areas.’ 

Aver had previously been classed by police as a ‘risk to women and children’ when he went on the run earlier in the year.

He is described as being 5ft 6in tall, of medium build and having short, brown hair.

However, the force’s appeal to find Aver has prompted mocking remarks from social media users who are seemingly amused by his mugshot – which shows him wearing a sweater littered with logos of the bakery giant Greggs.  

‘The fashion police may have him. That jumper is a crime in itself,’ wrote Vanessa Knight.

One said: ‘Wanted for baking and entering and possession of an offensive jumper.’ 

Aver was wearing a Greggs jumper in his mugshot. Greggs recently joined with Primark to release a collection of pastry-themed clothing, including jumpers, shoes and tracksuits

Tom Goulden joked: ‘Wanted for baking and entering & possession of an offensive jumper.’ 

‘He’s behind the counter at Bury Greggs! You’ll catch him if you park up outside and wait. We’ll call it a Steak Bake out,’ Aaron Lee replied. 

‘Just proves, beyond a reasonable doubt, some people will wear anything,’ Lynne Rohmann added.

Emily Robinson joked: ‘Imagine getting lifted wearing that jumper.’  

Maria Carty said: ‘If he’s not wearing the matching leggings I’ll be disappointed.’

‘Best publicity Greggs and Primark have had,’ echoed Vanessa JS.

‘He’s never going to live that mugshot down. If he’s not arrested for his crimes against fashion he’ll want to be arrested to hide his humiliation.’ 

Greater Manchester Police reposted the Facebook plea, adding: ‘Other bakery chains are available.’

Greggs joined with Primark to release a collection of pastry-themed clothing, including jumpers, shoes and tracksuits.
