FORGET lords-a-leaping or partridges in a pear tree — it's not so much 12 days of Christmas as a dirty dozen.
The Post has teamed up with South Wales Police in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot to unwrap people officers want to talk to.
The people on this Christmas list are wanted in connection with a range of offences from breaching the conditions of a prison release licence to assault and drugs matters.
One has been tracked down, but there's still 11 on the list and officers are urging anyone with information about any of the faces featured in the rogues gallery to contact them.
Superintendent Phil Davies said: "South Wales Police is a 24/7 organisation and our pro-active approach in tracking down criminals and wanted people will not stop over Christmas. We have teamed up with the Evening Post to feature a number of individuals who are wanted for various offences.
"My advice to them is to hand yourself in now or run the risk of a visit from the police and being arrested over Christmas."
Meanwhile police are getting into the festive spirit by sending Christmas cards to known criminals.
The cards warn individuals to be on their best behaviour, and also invite people wanted on warrant for failing to appear at court or answer their bail to hand themselves in.
Inspector Karl Eenmaa, of the Port Talbot neighbourhood policing team, said: "The cards inform the recipients who are wanted on warrant or suspected of committing an offence that we will be conducing operations in the days leading up to Christmas and it would be in their interests to hand themselves in."
