A man who is wanted in connection with nine burglaries was arrested in a police raid after he jumped from an upstairs window.

Officers went to an unnamed location in Havering today (Monday, January, 22) to conduct an early morning arrest enquiry.

A Met Police spokeswoman said: “The male was found at the location and proceeded to jump from an upstairs window in an escape attempt.

“He was swiftly detained outside the address.

“The male is wanted for approximately nine burglary offences and was arrested.”

This arrest was just one of many endeavours carried out under Operation Mexico to combat burglary.

Councillor Khayer Chowdhury said: “Wherever they live, wherever they burgle, they will be chased relentlessly.

“Burglars and robbers can run for a short while but they cannot hide, it will be a matter of time until they are arrested and taken down.”
