The criminals and fugitives living among us

These are the faces of some of the most wanted men and women living among us in Australia.

Wanted for murder, armed robbery, sexual assault and a string of sickening crimes, police and Crime Stoppers fear some of the most wanted criminals in Australia could be hiding in plain sight.

“These criminals could be working alongside you in your community,” Crime Stoppers (NSW) CEO Peter Price AM warned.

“It might be a new person you’ve noticed in your area or a more familiar face such as a neighbour, work colleague, friend or even a family member.”

The Australian public is being called on to help track down 20 of the most wanted fugitives who are spread out across the country.

Pictured below are the individuals being targeted in this year’s Operation Roam 'Rogue Radar' campaign.
