Conman is caught 16 years after going on the run

A CONVICTED Bradford swindler has been arrested and brought to court 16 years after he went on the run.
A man police believe to be Robert Bowman, the so-called TV conman, was apprehended in the South of England on Wednesday and transported back to West Yorkshire.
He has since made three appearances before the Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC, before being transferred from Leeds Prison to Lynfield Mount Hospital in Bradford on Friday afternoon.
The man initially accepted at Bradford Crown Court that he was Robert Bowman.


But after admitting being in breach of his bail, he then told his barrister that he was not the wanted fraudster and claimed to be Andrew Walker with a different date of birth.
Judge Thomas said: “We will work on the basis that he is Robert Bowman.”
Bowman, formerly of Towngate, Wyke, was 28 when he disappeared in 2001 before he could be sentenced for a scam aimed at getting money from the estates of dead people.
