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.

Bhamji, from Farrington Moss, has returned to prison, where he will serve the remainder of his 10-year sentence for aggravated burglary. He has also been bailed in relation to allegations of assault and will be spoken to at a later date.
