Bromley sees 13 arrests as Operation Big Wing swoops in
13 PEOPLE were arrested in Bromley yesterday, including two men who stole from a phone shop only to flee straight into some police officers on a refreshments break.
The arrests came as Operation Big Wing cracked down on thieves who target the public for valuables.
Arrests were made for a range of offences, including suspicion of handling stolen goods, robbery, burglary, drugs, assault, immigration offences and offenders wanted on warrant.
Quantities of drugs, stolen goods and cash were recovered during raids.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Furphy from Bromley Police said: "Big, highly visible operations like Operation Big Wing play a major part in the fight against crime and demonstrates there is no hiding place for criminals.
"These operations reinforce what we do on daily basis in targeting criminals head-on and provide further public reassurance through visible high impact policing.
"Yesterday we arrested 13 suspected criminals, people who have been a blight on their local communities.
"A number of those offenders have been arrested as a result of intelligence and information provided by members of the public, acting as our 'eyes and ears' and I ask residents continue to provide information about crime and criminals in your area."
