John Mark Christiansen, aged 35, of Robert Street, is wanted in connection with the theft of seven bottles of aftershave from Boots, on Cambridge Street, on 14 January 2013.
Harrogate Magistrates’ Court has also issued a warrant for his arrest after he failed to attend on 31 January 2013 to answer two theft charges.
Christiansen was arrested on 12 January 2013, and charged with stealing eight bottles of aftershave from the same Boots store and was also due to answer another charge of stealing four cans of cider from a petrol station on Ripon Road.
Officers are appealing to anyone who knows where Christiansen is or sees him around, to get in touch.
He is described as white, around 6ft 1in tall, with a slim build, brown hair and blue eyes.
