Police have tracked down 19 wanted criminals by luring them in with free beer.

These suspects are people who have managed to evade arrest for some time so we have used different tactics to find them.

Undercover officers at Derbyshire Police sent letters to the men, who had evaded arrest, asking them to phone a marketing company if they wanted a free crate of beer - but unbeknown to them the number went straight through to Chesterfield Police Station.

The criminals were asked to provide their name and an address of where their free alcohol could be dropped off, and police then travelled to their houses and arrested them.

Chief Inspector Graham McLaughlin, who is leading Operation Rocky, said: "These suspects are people who have managed to evade arrest for some time so we have used different tactics to find them."
