Burglar hunters release images of 15 suspects wanted across the North East

Police are searching for these 15 suspects in connection with a range of offences.

A team of burglar hunters have released the pictures of 11 suspected thieves wanted in connection with offences across the North East.

Northumbria Police officers are looking to locate the fugitives- who are believed to be evading arrest- so they can be interviewed in connection with a range of burglary, robbery and theft offences.

The Force’s dedicated teams are intensifying their efforts to track down their top targets as the darker nights loom – and are asking the public to rise to the challenge once again.

They are appealing for anybody who has seen the 15 suspects, or know where they may be residing, to get in touch and pass on information about their whereabouts.

Anyone pictured is encouraged to hand themselves in to the nearest police station.

Detective Chief Inspector Laura Stabler, Force lead for burglary, said: “This type of crime is incredibly intrusive and has an enormous impact on victims and their families, as well as the wider community.

“That’s why we have dedicated burglary teams located across Northumbria who are tasked with reviewing every break-in, pursuing perpetrators and working with residents and businesses to reduce the risk of becoming victims of crime.

“Today, we’re releasing the pictures of 15 suspects who are each wanted in connection with burglary or theft offences, and I know the public’s response has been amazing following recent appeals. If you know their whereabouts, please let us know.

“We are absolutely committed to ensuring burglars and thieves, who show a total disregard for their communities for selfish gain, are swiftly brought to justice. We’ve seen some great recent successes with prolific offenders put behind bars.

“As the darker nights draw in, we know that some opportunistic thieves may hope to use the cover of darkness to disguise their criminality. Our message is clear – you will be pursued, and you will be caught.”
