Adelaide police hunt ex-prison guard for firearms offence

ABC News logo ABC News 21/05/2014

Adelaide police are hoping a wanted criminal who might be armed will surrender to them and not create a danger to the public as they continue to hunt him.

Former prison guard Rodney Ian Clavell 46, has a long criminal history and currently is wanted for offences including breaching a firearms ban.

In 2004 he was shot twice by police during a chase through the Adelaide Hills when he stole a 12-tonne grader.

Four years later, he was involved in rioting at regional Port Augusta prison.

Chief Inspector Alby Quinn says police searched two properties at suburban Skye in Adelaide yesterday believing Clavell might have been inside and armed, but he was not found.

"We are aware that he was at least one of those addresses in the recent past," he said.

"If Mr Clavell is listening I'd really ask that he actually arranges to surrender himself and, if he does contact us, we'll facilitate his surrender as safe as possible."
