Lincolnshire Police is appealing to find ten of its most wanted suspects who are still on the run, including convicted rapists, alleged burglars and potential assault suspects.
Detective chief superintendent Andy Cox, head of crime at the force, said: “Lincolnshire Police will do all we 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 encourage anybody who features on our most wanted list to immediately hand themselves in.”
