Ten arrests have been made in the borough as part of a cross border police operation.

Operation Cronus saw four policing divisions join forces to target burglars, thieves, robbers, the handling of stolen goods and run traffic checks.

The 12 hour operation on Tuesday, September 24, spanned Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge and the county of Essex.

Det Serg Nathan Lee of Barking and Dagenham Police said: “Police understand the misery caused to the public by burglars and robbers.

“The emotional cost of becoming a victim of thieves can far outweigh the value of the goods taken.”

Officers made 38 arrests in total, issued three cautions, seized eight vehicles, issued one cannabis warning and issued 12 fines.

Arrests included burglars, bogus callers, car thieves, robbers, drug dealers and users and one person that was wanted on an international arrest warrant for three alleged serious assaults.
