Ch Insp Stephen Holgate, who is coordinating the Operation said:

"If you see any of these individuals or have any information on their whereabouts we need to hear from you. 
"We arrest a significant number of people who are wanted as part of our daily business. However, a small number of people will do all that they can to evade capture by the Police and go to ground. If you can help us locate these individuals please get in touch.
"Operation Hunter sends a clear message to criminals that there will be no hiding place. For those who think they can evade the criminal justice system, they are wrong - it is only a matter of time before you are caught."

**If you have any information on the above wanted people please give us a call on 101 or email [email protected] quoting log number 0364 of July 14th**
