Police crack down on burglaries in Brentwood
Essex Police cracked down on burglaries in Brentwood during a special operation yesterday (Tuesday).
Officers worked with Metropolitan Police and British Transport Police (BTP) in a bid to drive down the number of burglaries in the Hutton area of Brentwood.
They targeted the major roads and railway station making it difficult for criminals to travel in and out of the area.
The operation was part of Essex Police’s Operation Nemesis, which focuses on burglaries, and lists Brentwood as one of the target areas alongside Southend, Epping, Harlow and Colchester.
Chief Inspector Jason Scrivener, currently working on Operation Nemesis, said: “Information we have been gathering suggests a number of offenders may be using the rail network to travel and commit crime.

“By working together with our colleagues from the Met and BTP we have been able to share intelligence about key offenders, burglary trends and operational tactics in order to target the right areas at key times to disrupt those intent on committing crime.”
Chief Inspector Ed Wells, district commander for Epping and Brentwood, said: “Within the district my officers are tackling burglars every day and we have seen a number of criminals caught.
