Police are appealing to members of the public for help in tracking the men down with many of them living transient lifestyles and having access to multiple accommodation in a bid to evade arrest.

“We are carrying out a range of enquiries in order to locate them.

"As ever, the public are our eyes and ears and we are asking our fantastic communities to work with us. If you have seen any of these men, or know where they are residing, we want to hear from you.

“I would like to remind everyone that it is a criminal offence to harbour a wanted suspect, and we do not want anybody to get into trouble on their account. If you do have information, please get in touch – so we can bring them into custody and put the evidence to them.”

Anyone with information about any of the men are asked to contact us via the ‘Tell Us Something’ page of our website or by calling 101 quoting log NP-20211202-0298.
