Six people from Wycombe have been arrested for failing to appear at court as part of a police operation. 

A total of 33 people from across the Thames Valley have been arrested between October 2 and 13 as part of Operation Reaper. 

Six of those were from Wycombe and three were from South Bucks. 

The arrests follow 194 attempts early in the morning and late at night by a team of officers.

In total, eight women and 25 men aged between 19 and 66 were found.

They are all facing an array of offences - the largest number of which were for breaching court orders. 

Some were for driving-related offences, theft, and another man was arrested on suspicion of assault. 

Detective Sergeant Granville Williams, leading the operation, said: "Every day officers work really hard to safeguard victims and bring those that offend against them to justice.

"It is disheartening to see that many offenders deny justice being served by failing to appear at court and going on the run as fugitives.

"Thames Valley Police has recognised this growing problem and this two week operation is part of the measures put in place both locally and regionally to bring wanted fugitives to justice and achieve satisfactory closure for victims. I expect this successful initiative will continue."
