Lancashire Telegraph: Criminals entering Lancashire targeted in police operation Criminals entering Lancashire targeted in police operation

CRIMINALS crossing the borders into Lancashire have been targeted under the police’s Operation Monaco.

Volunteers from the Special Constabulary are conducting the operation targetting cross-border criminality.

Motorists have also been stopped to check for road safety offences such as ‘driving otherwise than in accordance with a driving licence’, driving a motor vehicle on a road without valid insurance cover’, ‘driving a vehicle on a road over three years old without a valid test certificate’, basic vehicle defects and drink driving.

On Saturday, officers spoke to drivers in Padiham Road, Burnley, at one of the sites being used for the operation. They also handed leaflets to drivers, explaining what it was all about.

I would have thought the police have enough criminals in Lancashire to be going on with without standing there waiting for ones from other counties to pass by.

No sign of them on Burnley Road in Cliviger or on the Long Causeway - both notorious rat-runs for the criminal fraternity.
