Detectives are asking for your help to find these men, all wanted in connection with drugs investigations sparked by the hack of EncroChat.

Investigators breached the shadowy communications network 13 months ago and gained unprecedented insight into the international underworld.

Of 60,000 worldwide customers around 10,000 are thought to have been based in the UK - with Merseyside identified as a hotspot for their use.

So far, more than 100 suspects have been arrested in the region in connection with police operations stemming from the hack.

Several major players in the North West underworld have already been jailed after admitting to multi-million plots exposed by the breakthrough.

Merseyside Police is now seeking to question six more men, each on suspicion of drugs offences, after they were identified through work linked to the messages obtained through EncroChat.

Detective Inspector Lee Wilkinson, who is leading the Merseyside Police response to the hack, said: “A total of 115 arrests and 84 charges have been brought so far in Merseyside, and working with law enforcement agencies across the world, we will continue to disrupt the criminal activity of those involved.

“We’re confident that these six men will all face justice sooner or later, so we’d encourage them or anyone who knows their whereabouts to contact us and stop delaying the inevitable.

“Merseyside and many areas of the UK are safer thanks to this operation, and we will continue to target anyone we suspect is involved in serious organised crime and keep this positive momentum going.”

*Anyone with details of the location of any of these suspects can contact Merseyside Police via Twitter (@MerPolCC), Facebook (Merseyside Police Contact Centre), or by calling 101.
