POLICE have thanked the public for their assistance in putting a wanted Bromsgrove man in custody.

West Mercia Police last week issued an appeal for help in tracking 28-year-old Parrick McCarthy.

He was wanted on a warrant after failing to comply and appear at a police station.

However, several days after issuing the appeal, officers confirmed they had located and arrested McCarthy on Monday night (July 27).

"We would like to thank the public for their assistance with our appeal," a West Mercia Police spokesperson said.
