Three arrested in Lichfield after Operation Justice police raids

Three people have been arrested in Lichfield as part of a series of police raids.

The Operation Justice campaign saw officers visit addresses across Staffordshire.

Those held in Lichfield were arrested on suspicion of crimes including taking a vehicle without consent and possession with the intent to supply.

Chief Superintendent Wayne Jones said: “Today’s activity targeted people who have recently been identified through forensic or CCTV work, so an early morning knock at the door was a surprise for a few people who were not expecting us.

“This operation was and is about reassuring victims and helping to keep people safe.

“My officers are dedicated in their determination to respond to the wishes of the community.

When people call Staffordshire Police for help and support following a crime most want to see some form of sanction or justice delivered and it is our job to make sure that this happens.”
