Lancashire Police have arrested a second man in their hunt for Lancashire’s most wanted.


Robert Towers, who was wanted after failing to appear at court, has come forward following the recent Operation Hunter appeal, which targets some of the county’s most wanted offenders trying to evade justice.

The 39-year-old from Bamber Bridge is due to appear before Preston Magistrates Court today to face a theft charge.

The arrest follows Adam Bhamji, who had been wanted on recall to prison since last year, was arrested on Saturday 25 July on the M5 motorway.
