Jamie Lee Turner, 33, from Bolton, is wanted by police in connection with a series of vehicle break-ins which affected numerous residents across Chorley on December 28.
Turner has links to the Chorley and Bolton areas.
In addition to Turner, two other men are also wanted by police in connection to the vehicle break-ins.
PC Craig McCabe, of Chorley Police, said: “We are keen to find Turner as soon as possible.
“Turner, as well as two other men, are wanted in connection with thefts from vehicles overnight on December 28.
“As many as 30 vehicles were targeted in the Adlington area and it is vital we find those responsible.”
