Police are trying to trace a convicted drug dealer with connections to Bexhill who breached the terms of his licence.

Billy Joe Wiggins, 25, was recalled to prison on September 4 for breaching licence conditions attached to a three-year sentence for supplying drugs.

He has connections to Eastbourne, St Leonards, Bexhill and Hounslow.

He is also known to regularly visit parts of London and Brighton and may even be in the Baltic state of Lithuania.

Wiggins is described as white, 5ft 11ins tall, with light brown hair and hazel eyes.

He has several social media accounts.

Detective Chief Inspector Emma Heater, senior investigating officer, said, “We’ve reason to suspect that Wiggins has recently been in Lithuania.

“This is primarily in the town of Kaunas, and possibly the capital, Vilnius.

“We are liaising with other forces both at home and abroad in an effort to trace him.”

Police ask anyone who has seen Billy Joe Wiggins or who may know where he is to email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or phone 101.

Alternatively they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers without leaving their name on 0800 555 111.
