This is a message from the Northamptonshire Police Community Messaging Team.

Officers working on Operation Guardian were busy on the streets of Northamptonshire yesterday, Thursday 21 January.

Operation Guardian is the countywide operation dedicated to bringing to justice those involved in serious acquisitive crime – robbery, burglary and vehicle crime.

Today 18 arrests have been made, 18 warrants carried out and since October Operation Guardian has produced more than 400 arrests across Northamptonshire.

The arrests made yesterday were:
A male and a female were arrested in Ellfield Court, Northampton, for possession of drugs.
One male was arrested in Northampton for breach of bail.
One male was arrested for assault in Paddock Mill Court, Northampton.
One male was arrested in Simmington Street, Northampton for possession of drugs.
One male was arrested on Chelcombe Avenue for possession of drugs.
Two males were arrested for burglary, one in Grassmere Green and one in Towcester Road, Daventry.
One male was arrested for failing to appear in court.

Following a warrant in Ellfield Court, Northampton, officers have recovered, what is believed to be a significant quantity of crack, cocaine and cannabis, as well as several thousand pounds in cash.

Additionally counterfeit DVDs, electrical items and a safe have been seized.

A cannabis factory in Northampton Road, Kettering was also discovered.

In the first of its kind in the county, senior police officers have been out and about visiting people of interest. Superintendent Mark Evans and Chief Inspector Tom Thompson have been making personal visits this morning.

Superintendent Peter Windridge, commented: “We are using this new approach of senior officers visiting known offenders or people we have concerns about, to reinforce that Operation Guardian is here to disrupt criminal activity, we know who they are and we will be keeping an eye on them.

“We are also using these visits to give these people a chance to reflect on their lifestyles and provide them with an opportunity to seek help away from offending behaviour.”

Officers have been out with Trading Standards in a joint visit to Lower Ecton Lane recycling centre, with further visits to five other premises throughout the county.

Bluetooth messaging has also been used today, in locations across the county, to send out crime prevention messages to people in the community.

Officers have also been rolling out Smartwater kits across the Delapre/Far Cotton area to further improve crime prevention.

If you have any information on who may be committing these crimes please call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
