Operation Hunter: Do you know the latest most wanted faces for Lancashire?

Wednesday, October 6, 2021

Do you recognise any of these faces who make up this week’s most wanted?

 

They are all wanted as part of Operation Hunter which targets those wanted individuals who try to evade capture.

 

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.

 

Launched in July, this operation sees taskforce officers from across the Force as well as specialist units including Tactical Operations and the ANPR intercept teams target individuals wanted for a range of offences including domestic abuse, sexual offences and general criminality.

 

If you recognise anyone below please contact us on 101 quoting log number 0526 of October 6.

* Joel Ludlum, 26, of Kime Street, Burnley has been arrested today (October 15) and recalled to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence for burglary. 

 

* Adam Hulme, 30, from Longridge handed himself in on Monday (October 11) following our appeals to locate him after he failed to appear at Preston Magistrates Court in July. 

 

* Reece Murgatroyd, 22, of no fixed address, who was wanted on prison recall and on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon, was arrested at an address in Padiham yesterday (October 10).

 

Murgatroyd was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, Section 18 Assault, affray and possession of an offensive weapon. He remains in custody at this time and will be recalled to prison in due course.

 

*Following our appeals for information a 35-year-old man from Morecambe was arrested in connection with an investigation into harassment and stalking. He has since been released with no further action.
