These men are wanted over a string of burglaries across Leeds.

Detectives want to question Michael Swanson, 24, and Luke Watson, 25, in connection with several offences.

The public have been advised not to approach Swanson, of Temple Avenue, Rothwell, who is currently on licence from prison after being released part way through a three-year eight-month sentence for a break-in at Royds Lane, Rothwell, in August 2013.

Watson is wanted on a warrant after failing to appear before Leeds Crown Court charged with other offences.

Detective Sergeant Paul Kravtschuk, of Leeds District CID, said: “Officers have been conducting a number of enquiries to trace both of these men and I would like to speak to anyone who has seen them recently and can help us locate them.

“Both men are linked to burglary offences throughout Leeds and we believe they are in the local area.

Anyone with information should contact Leeds CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
