‘The success of our Most Wanted campaign is down to the public and their willingness to help protect those they love and the communities they care about. I encourage everyone to check the digital advan screens and our website, to let us know immediately if you have information, no matter how small, on any of the wanted individuals.’

Donna Jones, Hampshire and IoW Police and Crime Commissioner, added: ‘I am pleased to support the Crimestoppers Hampshire and Isle of Wight ‘Most Wanted’ campaign.

‘By sharing the identity of the most wanted people across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, we are encouraging people to pass on any information to help locate these individuals.’
