A COURIER who stole £5,000 worth of furniture before selling it on eBay failed to turn up for his court hearing.

The hunt is now on for Lamin Darboe, 38, from Wilson Close in Daventry, who was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment.

He was tried and convicted of theft despite failing to turn up to his trial at Northampton Crown Court.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest and he also faces a consecutive sentence for jumping bail.
