A police spokesman said, “Further to our recent appeal for information and identification of a male we wished to speak with regarding a number of burglaries in the Penwortham area, a male has been arrested and is currently in custody.
“Thanks to absolutely everyone who has assisted us – I will keep you updated and post more information very soon.

It is unknown whether that individual has been involved in the most recent arrest made by authorities.
