East Lancashire’s most wanted men and woman

OFFICERS searching for five people from across East Lancashire are asking the public to help them track the suspects down.

Last week Lancashire Police launched Operation Hunter which targets some of the county’s most wanted offenders.

In the past seven days more than 40 wanted individuals have been arrested – and the force aren’t ready to stop just yet.

The following four men and a woman all have links to the east of the county and are wanted for a variety of offences.

Anyone who knows where they are or who sees them should call 101 and quote log reference number 0364 of July 14.

Ch Insp Stephen Holgate, who is coordinating the Operation said: “If you see any of these individuals or have any information on their whereabouts we need to hear from you.

“We arrest a significant number of people who are wanted as part of our daily business. However, a small number of people will do all that they can to evade capture by the Police and go to ground. If you can help us locate these individuals please get in touch.

“Operation Hunter sends a clear message to criminals that there will be no hiding place. For those who think they can evade the criminal justice system, they are wrong – it is only a matter of time before you are caught.”
