Police launch Lancashire burglary blitz
1:05pm Thursday 21st February 2013 in News
POLICE will be visiting some of Lancashire’s top burglary suspects as part of a drive to combat crime.
Operation Julius relaunches this week and will run until the end of March.
It is aimed at preventing crime, targeting criminals and detecting burglaries.
Officers will use a range of overt and covert tactics during the month-long crackdown to tackle suspected offenders and disrupt their activity.
Officers will be executing warrants and high visibility police patrols will be carried out in hot spot areas. Last year’s operation in February saw a total over 350 people arrested.
Almost £30,000 of stolen property was recovered and 183 search warrants were carried out.
Officers searched over 2,800 suspects, seized 89 vehicles and visited more than 346 second hand shops.
