A wanted man was arrested in Lancaster city centre after being chased by police.
Danny Coulton, 34, had been on the run since September 2014.
He was sentenced to one year, five months and 28 days imprisonment at Bradford Crown Court for fraud on January 9, 2014.
He was wanted for breaching the terms of his home detention curfew.
The Lancaster Neighbourhood Policing team arrested him after a foot chase through Lancaster on Monday, witnessed by shoppers and passers-by.
Police would like to thank members of public for their information which enabled them to make the arrest.
Danny Coulton has now been recalled to prison where he may have to serve the remainder of his sentence.
