More ar­rests in bur­glary crack­down

Sunderland Echo - - News -

A bur­glary crack­down is gath­er­ing pace as more sus­pected crim­i­nals find them­selves be­ing quizzed by po­lice.

Since Fri­day, of­fi­cers have been visit­ing known of­fend­ers to re­mind them that they have them in their sights as part of Op­er­a­tion Sleigh.

Homes of sus­pected crim­i­nals have also been searched with 24 ar­rests made in the first three days of the crack­down.

Now, five more peo­ple have been added to the ar­rest sheet as of­fi­cers con­tinue to dis­rupt the lives of sus­pected bur­glars ahead of Christ­mas across Sun­der­land and South Ty­ne­side.

De­tec­tive Chief In­spec­tor Lee Gosling said: “We are con­tin­u­ing to pro-ac­tively tar­get sus­pected bur­glars and to make ar­rests.

“We wanted to run this op­er­a­tion to re­as­sure the pub­lic, bur­glary is still one of our key pri­or­i­ties.
