Police say that Carl Beadle, 39, and Hagan Swann, 34, both know they are wanted and are actively avoiding arrest.
Officers have confirmed that Beadle is wanted in connection with a burglary, whereas Swann is wanted in connection with a robbery.
Detective Chief Inspector Laura Stabler, Force lead for burglary, has highlighted the impact that these types of crime can have on residents in the local area.
She said: “This type of crime is incredibly intrusive and has an enormous impact on victims and their families, as well as the wider community.
“That’s why we have dedicated burglary teams located across Northumbria who are tasked with reviewing every break-in, pursuing perpetrators and working with residents and businesses to reduce the risk of becoming victims of crime.
“Today, we’re releasing the pictures of 15 suspects who are each wanted in connection with burglary or theft offences, and I know the public’s response has been amazing following recent appeals. If you know their whereabouts, please let us know.
“We are absolutely committed to ensuring burglars and thieves, who show a total disregard for their communities for selfish gain, are swiftly brought to justice. We’ve seen some great recent successes with prolific offenders put behind bars.
“As the darker nights draw in, we know that some opportunistic thieves may hope to use the cover of darkness to disguise their criminality. Our message is clear – you will be pursued, and you will be caught.”
