Crimestoppers launches gallery of most wanted unknown suspects

A crime-fighting charity has revealed a list of its most-wanted unknown suspects

The Crimestoppers Unknowns Gallery has been launched to mark the charity's 10,000th appeal.

In the East of England suspects and crimes range from a fraud in Thetford to a stranger rape in Welwyn Garden City,

Crimestoppers is encouraging the public to view the images and pass on the information that they know.

Since its launch in 2005, Most Wanted has featured over 10,000 appeals resulting in over 2,600 arrests.

The online hub receives around 35,000 views every month from the public and it is hoped this figure will further increase with the launch of the new section. Last year, there were 16 arrests of Most Wanted individuals in the eastern region.

The Unknowns Gallery will allow police and law enforcement users to upload images of individuals that they require names for.

Crimestoppers' Eastern Regional Manager, Ann Scott, said: "Most Wanted has proved to be a hugely beneficial service for law enforcement agencies and the UK public over the last nine years in helping locate wanted suspects and convicted criminals.

"The Unknowns Gallery will help to build on this platform with a view to improving arrest rates in all areas of crime and ultimately help to make those in Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire a safer place to live".

Crimestoppers takes information on all crime anonymously via 0800 555 111.
