THESE four pictures — specially released by the police — show South Devon's four Most Wanted men.
Police say that between them the four are responsible for hundreds of shoplifting and drugs offences.
All are actively evading police and the courts and police have issued their pictures in an attempt to get the public to help find them.
But police warn that the public should not approach any of them.
Chief Insp Adrian Leisk said: "These four individuals have been responsible for wasting a significant amount of police time and resources and they are top of our priority list.
"Between them all they are responsible for hundreds of drug and shoplifting offences and we want them off the streets because of the harm they are causing to our local communities.
"That is why we have decided to issue their pictures. All are involved in the criminal justice process and must be brought before the courts to be dealt with and sanctioned for their offending.
"We will be really grateful for the support of the public in any way."
He warned that the public should not approach any of the four if they think they recognise them.
He said: "I would advise the public not to approach them personally but they should contact us using the emergency 999 number and say which one they have seen and we will find them."
He added: "Well-known drug dealer Damien Pearce has been avoiding us for a number of months now.
"He is 36 and has been living in the Dawlish area which he is well-acquainted with.
"For years he has been a well-known supplier of Class A drugs in the Teignmouth area. He was let out of prison after his sentence on licence. But he has failed to stick to the conditions of his licence and is now wanted by the Ministry of Justice for a recall to prison for intent to supply heroin.
"Paul Wells is a prolific shoplifter who is wanted for breach of a restraining order for criminal damage at Lincoln Green in Hele and on suspicion of shoplifting from Boots in Torquay on August 7. He is aged 37 and has no fixed address.
"Ian Anderson is another prolific shoplifter with at least 10 outstanding crimes listed against him. He is 43 and from Birmingham originally but his address is now given as Princes Road, Torquay. We know he's not there.
"Aaron Elliott-Smith is actively avoiding police in the Newton Abbot and Totnes areas. He is 33 and has 252 crime links to his name. He has been charged with actual bodily harm in February but he did not appear in court."
