A Merseyside man who has been wanted on recall to prison for two years has been arrested in Huyton.
Loi Van Tran, 36, from Liverpool, served a sentence for the production of a Class B controlled drug after he was convicted on 3 June 2021.
He then breached his license conditions and was recalled to prison on Friday 24th September 2021.
Extensive efforts were made by officers to find Loi Van Tran and an appeal for information was circulated across Merseyside. At around 5.40pm last night (Wednesday 19 October) officers spotted a vehicle on Stockbridge Lane carrying more passengers than the car could hold.
When police stopped the car two men got out and ran from officers in the area.
Loi Van Tran was stopped by police and recalled to prison.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Sutcliffe said: “I hope this arrest shows that there is no hiding place for anyone who is evading police.
Thanks to the vigilance of our officers Loi Van Tran has been located and returned to prison.
“These actions are about stopping anyone who could cause fear and harm in our community and we will leave no stone unturned to find people who are wanted – either in connection with ongoing investigations or when they have their licence revoked.”
