Police on Tuesday (February 8) launched an appeal to find five of the most wanted fugitives in Lancashire.
Today (February 9), officers confirmed they had made two arrests "as a direct result of information received from the public".
- Radcliffe Lewis who was arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment.
- Cameron Casson who was arrested on suspicion of GBH and robbery.
They remained in custody for questioning on Wednesday morning (February 9).
Police were still asking for information on the whereabouts of the remaining three individuals.
Chief Supt Karen Edwards, of West Police, said: "We work relentlessly to pursue those people who are trying to evade justice and sometimes we need the help of the community to be our eyes and ears.
"I would urge anyone who knows where any of these individuals are, or who has any information which could help us track them down to get in touch.”
Anyone with information can contact police on 101, quoting log number 0636 of February 8.
For immediate sightings call 999.
Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
