In a particularly distressing incident, a victim’s dog was tragically killed during one of the burglaries.
Foster is known to have connections to the Hartlepool and Blackhall areas.
Police are urging anyone with information about his whereabouts to come forward.
Officers looking for Foster have stressed the severity and heart-wrenching nature of the crimes, especially pointing out the fatality of the innocent pet.
