My friends have a B&B in a North Yorkshire market town and this last weekend (August 29th and 30th) found a guest had checked out without settling his bill. He also helped himself to quantity of antique Staffordshire pottery, one co owner was a former antiques dealer so they were particularly nice pieces. He also caused malicious damage to his room.

If you google him he has a long track record of doing this and has previous past convictions. There is Crimewatch clip from 2013 which shows some good photos of him, how to recognise him with a distinct tattoo and scar, and also some of his pseudonyms.

My friends have been in the industry quite some years and said there was nothing about him that made them suspicious, he seemed very charming and genuine, as scam artists often are.
