Wanted man with Spalding links arrested
A man with links to Spalding, who has appeared on Lincolnshire Police's '10 Most Wanted' list, has been detained.
Police say Stephen Pickering (45), who has evaded the law for more than six months, has been arrested by Great Manchester Police and will be dealt with in due course.
Pickering was wanted for failing to appear in court in relation to drugs possession and traffic offences and should have stood before magistrates on July 29.
He is one of six of the county's most wanted suspects to have been located.
A spokesman said: "We would like to thank the public for their support and for sharing our appeal. Please continue to share this appeal so we can locate those who remain outstanding."
Det Chief Supt Andy Cox, the force's head of crime, previously said: "Lincolnshire Police will do all it can to locate and bring to justice our most wanted people.
"We do so to protect the public as every single day these people remain at large is a day in which they may commit more crime and, in doing so, create more victims.
"We are using this new 'Top Ten' approach in the hope that it reaches a wide audience and that members of the public who have information which may assist our efforts decide to share this information with us.
"We would encourage anybody who features on our most wanted list to immediately hand themselves in as we will continue to focus and target resource every single day and night to locate these people, take action and deliver justice for victims."
