Inspector Richard McKenzie said: "The men pictured have been wanted for some time, but time is no barrier to justice and our enquiries remain ongoing until they return to face the courts. If you recognise any of them, or hold any information as to their whereabouts, let us know and we will do the rest.
"The serious nature of offences they are under investigation mean we will not stop looking until we bring them in."
