A BARNSLEY man who evaded police before being caught and returned to jail will be sentenced on Friday.

Joe Haigh, 26, from Thurnscoe, is due to appear in court charged with conspiracy to handle stolen goods.

Haigh, who breached the conditions of his licence, had been on the run until he was spotted by local Police Community Support Officers and later tracked down by a police dog and his handler.

He will appear at Barnsley Magistrates' Court on Friday.
