An appeal has been launched to trace three Blackburn teens following an alleged car theft and attempted car theft in Langho, say police.

Officers say that at around 3.20am on March 11, a white Ford Fiesta car was stolen from an address in Whitehalgh Lane, Langho. The vehicle was later involved in a collision on Infirmary Road, with the offenders making off from the scene.

Following an investigation, police say officers established the same car had been stolen from the address earlier in the evening and returned during a party

The next day four males allegedly approached the same property and attempted to take a Range Rover. The group made off from the scene before being stopped and spoken with by police.

After conducting a number of enquiries, officers want to trace Corey Freeman, 18, of Greenside Avenue, Blackburn, Dylan Bradley, 17, of Thornton Close, Blackburn and Jordan Russell, 18, of Ridgeway Avenue, Blackburn (pictured left to right) in connection with the alleged offences.

PC Danny Craig, of Lancashire Police, said: “We are appealing for information about the whereabouts of three males following a car theft and attempted car theft in Langho.

“If you have seen Russell, Bradley or Freeman, or know where they are, please get in touch with us.”
