Written by Skywave Radio News on June 19, 2020
Lancashire Police are appealing for help to find a man who failed to attend Preston Crown Court.
Mohammed Saleem Khan was sentenced in his absence to 66 months in prison for conspiracy to handle and receive stolen goods.
The 47-year-old is also still wanted in connection with offences of assault, threats to kill and engaging in coercive behaviour.
He is described as being 6ft tall, of medium build with dark/greying, receding hair.
Officers said Khan has links to the Preston, Nelson and Burnley areas and are appealing to anyone with information about his whereabouts to come forward.
DC Jane Thomas, of Lancashire Police, said: “Khan is wanted by police in connection with several serious offences. If you see Khan, please do not approach him. Instead call police providing a description of his clothing.
“Furthermore, I would urge Khan to come forward and speak with police as soon as possible. I would also remind anyone helping Khan that it is an offence to assist an offender.”
