OFFICERS carried out a high-impact day across the county yesterday, Wednesday 25 April, focusing on Serious Acquisitive Crime (SAC), and two of the Force Priorities - protecting vulnerable people and reducing violent crime.
The activity was county-wide but focused on Northampton, with the following results:
In Beaumont Drive, officers worked in partnership with the RSPCA to execute an arrest. A dog believed to be subject to cruelty was seized from the same address. A further warrant was carried out in the town centre under prohibited dog legislation, resulting in a Pit Bull terrier being seized and taken to kennels prior to identification.
A Misuse of Drugs Act warrant was carried out in St James, and in Kingsthorpe, a man was given a cannabis warning and a small amount of cannabis was seized.
Two people were arrested for assault in Great Meadow under Operation Challenge, the Force’s drive to reduce violent crime in the county. Both were bailed pending further enquiries.
A 19-year-old man was arrested in Moulton for Breach of Bail, and also received a cannabis warning.
Seven disruption visits were carried out on the East Sector.
A further nine warrants were executed across the county for SAC offences or violence; two men were arrested in Wellingborough for burglary, both were bailed pending further enquiries, and there were eight curfew checks across the county.
Command Support Officer, Nick Paul, said:
“It was a productive day and I’m particularly pleased with the dog warrants and our work with the RSPCA.
“This demonstrated that we support our partners.”
