Glenn Tamplin ‘on the run from police’ with warrants issued for his arrest

Glenn Tamplin is reportedly ‘on the run from police’ amid warrants issued for his arrest for cocaine and a community order.

The former Billericay Town and Romford owner is being hunted down having failed to comply with a community order between the 19th of October and the 4th of November in 2022, before failing to show up to St Albans Magistrates Court in 2023.

Tamplin, 51, then had a second arrest warrant issued in October for possession of cocaine back in May.

Hertfordshire Police have since put out a plea, confirmed they are looking for Tamplin following the arrest warrants being issued and if anyone knows any information as to his whereabouts, then they should contact them immediately.

Herts Police wrote in a Facebook post early December:
DOB: 14/01/1972
FROM: Last known addresses were Watford and Essex
WANTED FOR: Failing to attend St Albans Magistrates Court for breach of a court order.”

A spokesperson for the force said: “Glenn Tamplin is still wanted.

“A warrant was issued by St Albans Magistrates’ Court on July 12 for failing to comply with the requirements of a community order between October 19 2022 and November 4 2022.

“A warrant was also issued by St Albans Magistrates’ Court on October 3 for possession of a controlled Class A drug (cocaine) on May 9.”

If anyone has any knowledge or information on his whereabouts should get in touch with Herts Police on 101 quoting reference number 41/11002/23, or visit herts.police.uk to find out how to submit a report online.

Glenn Tamplin is known to be a businessman, investor and former football club owner and manager, mostly making the headlines during his time at Billericay Town, of which he was the co-owner, director and manager, where he brought in a number of ex-Premier League and EFL players to the club.

He is also the principal owner of AGP Steel, with Tamplin back in 2017 coming second in the Essex Power 100 list, being named the second most powerful person in Essex only to then be declared bankrupt by the High Court of Justice on the 12th April 2023.

In November 2016, Glenn led a consortium in a bid to take over Dagenham & Redbridge, but that was withdrawn due to the board of directors removing their support for the offer.

A year later, he bought Billericay Town, which saw him bring in the likes of Paul Konchesky, Jamie O’Hara and Jermaine Pennant.

Tamplin is said to have then invested over £2million in the non league club for improvements and a new pitch and even had some rather eye-catching murals around the ground, in the tunnels and changing rooms, showing it and his rituals off on Sky Sports.

In 2017–18, he became their manager and guided them to the first round of the FA Cup, but he sacked himself in February 2018 after picking up three straight league defeats to the likes of Leiston, Folkestone Invicta and Wealdstone.

He reportedly had a disagreement with his players after asking them to give up a week’s wages following the poor run.

He then re-appointed himself as manager two days later. But in April, for the second time in two months, Tamplin said in an interview on YouTube, “Understanding me – Glenn Tamplin”, that he would again stepped down as their boss.

Then in September, he released a statement on the Billericay Town club website saying they were put up for sale, saying there had been two incidents where he was reported to police for alleged drug abuse (which he claimed were unfounded) and had led to the police questioning him about the allegations in front of members of his family.

Tamplin added that he could “take the personal abuse but now it has started to affect my health and my family. For me it has now crossed the line.”

September 2019 saw the club announce that he was stepping down as owner and director, and then a month later, he went to Romford, immediately sacking manager Paul Martin and appointing himself in place, but then Covid struck in March 2021, seeing Tamplin leave altogether.
