Police have launched a nationwide fugitive manhunt to track down 20 of the country’s most wanted criminals.
Police will use social media to seek information from the community about a number of alleged offenders who may have left their state or territory and are now residing interstate.
A reward of up to $1000 is offered for information that leads to the arrest of a fugitive.
The campaign, called Operation Roam, promotes the exchange of information regarding wanted people between states.
Included in the list of 20 wanted people were five men from NSW:
Brady Hamilton, 47, is wanted over his alleged involvement in a homicide in western Sydney on Wednesday, August 4, 1999.
Taylor Ware, 30, wanted over an alleged aggravated break and enter and police pursuit, as well as alleged larceny, trespassing and stealing offences committed in Corindi, on the state’s north coast, between May and July 2014.
Andrew Roos, 36, is wanted for his alleged involvement in sexual and indecent assaults in Berkley Vale, on the state’s Central Coast, between 2013 and 2015.
Hisham Touba, 36, is wanted over the alleged supply of prohibited drugs in Cabramatta in August 1999, and an alleged aggravated robbery, sexual assault and abduction at Prestons, in Sydney’s south west, on Saturday December 1, 2001.
Geoffrey Wallace, 51, is wanted by detectives over an alleged aggravated break and enter and assault in Corindi, on the north coast of NSW, on Thursday June 5, 2015.
