Joint-Chairman appeals for help to catch suspected burglar

David Buisson
Essex Police have launched an appeal to help them find a man in connection with a burglary in Joint-Chairman’s David Sullivan home village of Theydon Bois.

Officers want to speak to David Buisson, 47, who was last known to be living in Ongar.

Buisson is known to have links to Brentwood, Chingford, Waltham Abbey and other areas of the Epping Forest district, and Slough. He is 5’8 tall, of stocky build and has short, dark hair.

Anyone who knows of his whereabouts is asked to call DC Russ Chamberlain on 101. Alternatively, contact independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Mr Sullivan is also offering a £25,000 reward for any information leading to the capture and prosecution of a serial burglar, dubbed the Essex Spiderman, who attempted to burgle the Joint-Chairman’s house on Sunday 18 June.

The individual is alleged to have committed more than 50 burglaries in the Essex area since Christmas 2016, spreading across Chigwell, Ongar and Brentwood, targeting mostly watches and jewellery.

Although the attempt on Mr Sullivan’s home was unsuccessful, he has encouraged anyone with information relating to the Essex Spiderman’s identity to come forward in a bid to stop the spree.

Mr Sullivan said: “To have someone attempt break into your home is an awful experience, and I hope this reward will help bring the individual responsible to justice and prevent others going through the same ordeal.”

Anyone who has any relevant information should email [email protected] with as much detail as possible, which will then be shared with the police.
