Police have released details of nine people wanted on European arrest warrants who are mostly thought to be in West Yorkshire.
The men and woman, who are mostly Eastern European, are wanted in connection with a raft of allegations and convictions and are not thought to be linked in any way.
Superintendent Pat Casserly, of West Yorkshire Police Protective Services - Operations, said: “Some of these people have already been found guilty or convicted of serious crimes in their native country - they have not come to West Yorkshire to reform or rehabilitate, rather to hide from justice. I am appealing directly to anyone who knows where any of these people are to contact police.”
They are wanted on bench warrants issued by the City of Westminster Magistrates Court following their arrests on European arrest warrants.
Polish Patryk Dola, 25, was sentenced to two years and 10 months in prison for three assaults and two thefts of motor vehicles in his native country. Dola, who failed to surrender for extradition, is thought to have links to the Leeds area.
