AS Christmas draws closer, police officers are keeping the interview room nice and cosy, ready and waiting for some of Oxordshire's most wanted criminals.

The second of this Christmas' countdown of Oxfordshire's most wanted criminals is Haji Mohamed Salim. 

He is wanted for a theft that happened in St Aldates, Oxford - but he is thought to have fled to Somalia. 

He's one of the Crimestoppers most wanted for Oxfordshire, and when he is found he will be questioned by Thames Valley Police. 

He is described as aged 35 to 40.

Anybody with information should contact Crimestoppers using the reference CS1811-17488.

The people featuring in the 12 Days of Christmas have been listed as 'most wanted' by Crimestoppers, not the Oxford Mail. Crime agencies, using their professional judgements, have ranked these people as most wanted based on a) their alleged crimes b) risk to the general public. Police often ask for the help of the press in finding alleged criminals or witnesses of crime. The Oxford Mail runs several appeals for information a day, based on information given to us by the police. It is not up to the Oxford Mail to decide who is wanted by the police. The Oxford Mail is acting in the public interest in publishing the details, as provided by the police and Crimestoppers.
