Lincolnshire’s most wanted men from the Spalding area were caught within 24 hours of their images being posted online.

On Thursday, officers from Spalding circulated the names and photographs of three men who were wanted in connection with separate offences.

Luke Arons, 34, of Spalding, was wanted in connection with an assault.

Stuart Grogan, 32, of Pennygate, Spalding, had been issued with a warrant for his arrest in connection with an alleged theft offence.

And Shane Boynton, 35, of College Close, Holbeach, was wanted for failing to answer bail in relation to harassment offences.

Two of the men handed themselves in after seeing their details on social media and the third was arrested in Essex.

Community Policing Inspector Jim Tyner said: “The decision to publish the details of a person who has not been convicted of an offence is quite a significant step to take and has to be taken proportionately. These results show the power of social media can be used to good effect.”

Two men have been charged with theft from shop and harassment. The third man is being dealt with for offences in another force area before being dealt with for the Spalding offence.
