POLICE today appealed for the public’s help to trace a South Tyneside woman wanted on warrant for drug offences.

Officers are trying to trace Xiaoyan Chen, of Harton House Road, South Shields.

The 25-year-old was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of cannabis in June.

However, she failed to respond to police bail for the suspected offence in September.

Chen also goes by the name Lilly Wang or Xiao Wang Chen and may be elsewhere in the country.

She may also have two Akita dogs which she was known to have when in South Shields.

Officers have issued Chen’s picture in the hope anyone who recognises her will contact them.

Anyone who knows of her whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101, ext 69191.
