A wanted Boxted man who featured on BBC1’s Crimewatch programme last week has been arrested in Lancashire.

Suffolk Police made a number of appeals to trace Alan Smith, 56, from Boxted, and his photograph appeared on Crimewatch last Thursday as officers made a national bid to locate him.

The appeal brought in a number of leads, which resulted in his arrest in Lancashire last night.

Smith will now be brought back to Suffolk where he will interviewed in connection with a number of counts of fraud, totalling hundreds of thousands of pounds, against more than 20 victims.
