Have you seen this wanted man still thought to be in hiding in Blackburn?

Mohammed Rehan Awan, who goes by the name Ronnie, is believed to be using the canal paths, to get around East Lancashire, in order to avoid detection.

Ronnie, who also uses the name Rahan Malik, is wanted by police in connection with an aggravated burglary on Devon Road, Blackburn on January 29.

 The 30-year-old formerly of Livingstone Road, Blackburn is also wanted for absconding from HMP Kirkham since October 25th.

Ronnie has been in hiding since he absconded and we would like to remind anyone that may be helping Ronnie, that they could face a prosecution for assisting an offender.

We would also now like to appeal directly to Ronnie to hand himself in, we have information on his whereabouts and it is now only a matter of time until he is found.

Ronnie, is described as around 5ft 8in tall, of slim build, with short black hair, and a full beard and moustache.

A spokesperson for Lancashire Police said: "We have new information on Ronnie that he has been using the canals to get around, so he knows that the net is closing in. It would be in his own interest to do the right thing now and hand himself in.

“I would also urge anybody who has any information about his whereabouts to please let us know, anonymously if necessary. It is also very important to remember that it is an offence to assist an offender.”
