A MAN wanted by police for his involvement in a car-stealing racket on the Coffs Coast is one of several NSW fugitives to make a national most-wanted list.

NSW Police Force and Crime Stoppers have this week launched Operation Roam 2015 - an initiative to help track down wanted fugitives from across Australia.

Taylor Ware, 30, is wanted by NSW detectives regarding an alleged aggravated break and enter and police pursuit, as well as larceny, trespassing and stealing offences committed in Corindi between May and July 2014.

WANTED: Taylor Ware.
WANTED: Taylor Ware.

Coffs-Clarence Crime Manager Detective Inspector Darren Jameson said Mr Ware is wanted on 23 offences.

"It is an extensive list.... including police pursuits, aggravated break-and-enter, break and enter, receiving stolen property, larceny, traffic offences and the list goes on," Insp Jameson said.

"He has been moving around not only between Coffs Harbour and Queensland, but other regional area and that's made it very difficult for us to catch him.

"It's time for him to man up and surrender himself to police."

This year, Crime Stoppers has compiled a list of 20 wanted people in a nationwide campaign that promotes the exchange of information between policing jurisdictions.

Assistant Commissioner Peter Barrie said through Crime Stoppers, members of the public assist police to solve a crime every 14 minutes, somewhere in the world.

"Crime Stoppers has shown even the smallest piece of information can be crucial to solving a crime or locating a wanted person," Mr Barrie said.

Further information on wanted people involved in Operation Roam 2015 can be found at the Crime Stoppers website.
