Police are appealing for help to track down the eight remaining men on their Christmas wanted list

Police in Blackpool have tracked down two of the men featured in a list of wanted people published in The Gazette.

Officers drew up their Christmas wanted list – but one of the men who was included has since been released without charge.

A second man was arrested and charged with robbery on Sunday.

Police still want to speak to the other eight men and are asking the public to help find them.

Det Chief Insp Becky Smith, of Blackpool Police, said: “In the build up to Christmas we are targeting those people who are wanted for various offences, ranging from thefts to robberies to serious assaults.

“While officers will be out conducting address checks and making their own enquiries, we are hoping that the public will also be able to assist us in tracing the people on our list.”

A Lancashire Police spokesman has since added: “One of the men featured in the campaign, Luck Caddick, 25, from St Annes who was wanted in connection with making threats to commit criminal damage has been traced and since been released no charge.”

Details of the eight remaining people on the list are below.

* John Gaskin, 28, from Blackpool, is wanted in connection with robbery.

* John Bruce, who is also known as Tammy Stafford, 49, from Blackpool, is wanted in connection with assault.

* Daniel Busuioc, 25, from Blackpool, is wanted in connection with three offences of theft.

* Jamie Cawley, 18, from Fleetwood, is wanted in connection with two offences of assault and theft.
