Havering Police took part in a cross-border operation targeting burglars, thieves, robbers and those handling stolen goods on Tuesday.

The 12-hour operation - called Operation Cronus – saw police from four divisions make 38 arrests in total, including eight by Havering Police.

Havering Det Ch Insp Phil Rickells feels such a large-scale operation will hinder the activities of those still on the run.

He said: “This operation not only removes criminals from the community but disrupts the activities of those still at large.

“By working with BTP and running Automatic Number Plate Recognition we can effectively deny criminals the use of our roads and transport network.

“This operation is not a one day effort, my officers target burglars and robbers as part of their daily business - if you think it is okay to steal from others we’ll be seeing you soon.”

The operation saw police issue three cautions, seize eight vehicles, issue one cannabis warning and issue 12 fines.

Arrests included burglars, bogus callers, car thieves, robbers, drug dealers and users and one person that was wanted on an international arrest warrant for three counts of serious assault.

The operation included Barking and Dagenham Police, Redbridge Police, Havering Police, Essex Police, Traffic officers, dog units, Mounted Branch, Transport for London, search teams and the Territorial Support Group.

All boroughs were supported by local authority CCTV units.
