Two men arrested in Wellingborough for burglary during police high-impact day

TWO men were arrested in Wellingborough for burglary as part of a police high-impact day.

Officers held the high-impact day yesterday (Thursday, April 26) across the county to focus on serious acquisitive crime - robbery, burglary and vehicle crime - and two of the Force priorities, protecting vulnerable people and reducing violent crime.

Nine warrants were executed across the county for serious acquisitive crime offences or violence.

The two men who were arrested in Wellingborough for burglary were both bailed pending further enquiries and there were eight curfew checks across the county.

In Beaumont Drive, Northampton, officers worked in partnership with the RSPCA to execute an arrest.

A dog believed to be subject to cruelty was seized from the same address.

Another warrant was carried out in Northampton town centre under prohibited dog legislation, resulting in a Pit Bull terrier being seized and taken to kennels prior to identification.

A Misuse of Drugs Act warrant was carried out in St James, and in Kingsthorpe, a man was given a cannabis warning and a small amount of cannabis was seized.

Two people were arrested for assault in Great Meadow under Operation Challenge, Northamptonshire Police’s drive to reduce violent crime in the county. Both were bailed pending further enquiries.

A 19-year-old man was arrested in Moulton for breach of bail and also received a cannabis warning.

Command Support Officer Nick Paul said: “It was a productive day and I’m particularly pleased with the dog warrants and our work with the RSPCA.

“This demonstrated that we support our partners.”
