Operation Hunter: Result for West Lancashire's most wanted

Tuesday, August 3, 2021

Wanted man James Geddes has been arrested as part of Operation Hunter.

The 21-year-old was wanted in connection with an assault and kidnap in Fleetwood.

Geddes from Fleetwood was located and arrested in the town this morning (August 11th)and is currently in custody.

This comes after a 36-year-old man from Morecambe, was arrested last week and returned to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence for arson.

He will also be spoken to in connection with reports of assault, criminal damage and threats to kill.

That's three down, two to go of the most wanted individuals in West Lancashire.

They are all wanted by police as part of Operation Hunter dedicated to finding those trying to evade capture.
