Operation Cubo leads to arrests and seized vehicles in Bexley
BEXLEY police seized seven vehicles and stopped 243 drivers during a capital-wide operation on Thursday (September 27).
The operation, titled Operation Cubo, specifically targeted uninsured drivers by using automatic number plate recognition devices.
Across the borough, a total of 47 police officers arrested two people – one for being drunk behind the wheel and another on suspicion of fraud.
Fixed penalty notices were issued to 17 drivers while two motorists were given cannabis warnings.
Bexley Borough Commander, Chief Superintendent Victor Olisa said: “We’re targeting uninsured drivers to tackle criminal activity and to improve the safety of our roads in Bexley.
“Many uninsured drivers use their vehicles to facilitate their illegal activities and denying them the use of the roads makes it harder for them to commit crime.”
Since Operation Cubo was launched in October last year, nearly 37,000 vehicles have been seized across London.
