In two tweets on Sunday morning (January 7), Adur and Worthing Police said: “One male in custody who has been wanted (for) recall to prison since the 4th January.

“He thought we wouldn’t do a thorough check of the loft, but he was wrong.

“He’s on his way to prison shortly.

“His wife spent 10 minutes lying to us about him being in the address.

“That’s an offence in itself, and I’m certainly not one to break up a marriage.

“Now in opposite cells to each other.”
