6:00pm Monday 14th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A LEADING police officer has moved to assure residents that action is being taken against those who have targeted homes and businesses in the area.
Insp Chris Willis of Harwich police said: “The local police are actively targeting the relatively few in the community who we believe are responsible for committing these and other crimes which blight the town and we shall continue to do so.
“We have increased patrols and I am committed to making their lives are made as uncomfortable as the law permits.”
The force has made arrests relating to burglaries in the past fortnight with three males being arrested on September 24 and another on October 3 with investigations on going on each of these cases. More arrests are in the pipeline.
