Frederick formerly lived in Crabtree in Paston, Peterborough. He was also wanted by Leicestershire Police after going on the run following charges made for drug offences. On June 21, he was sentenced to an additional seven years in prison at Peterborough Crown Court. He had pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and cannabis, as well as possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition without holding a licence. Detective Constable Matthew Pope, who investigated, said: “Frederick’s luck had run out when we found him hiding out at a hotel. He is a dangerous man who is now spending many years in prison. Drugs bring misery to our communities, not only through the associated violence, but also anti-social behaviour. I would urge members of the public, who are the eyes and ears of our communities, to report information to us.”
