GMP Bolton records 15 arrests and reduction in reported burglaries following dedicated week of action

Section 60 stop-and-search order enforced in Strangeways area of Manchester

The arrests have, so far, resulted in six individuals being charged in connection with various related offences.

Officers also recovered six stolen vehicles and a number of stolen items. 

Detective Sergeant Carla Deighton, of GMP’s Bolton district, said: “First and foremost, I would like to highlight that our fight against this type of crime and our efforts to prevent and reduce it do not stop here – this is just one example of our success in doing so.

“We are committed to delivering outstanding service to our communities here in Bolton and we understand that they, rightly, expect that to include efforts to keep both them and their property safe whilst caring for those who have unfortunately been targeted.

“We will absolutely continue to take action against those we believe are responsible for breaking in to people’s homes and taking items which don’t belong to them but intelligence from members of the public is vital so I ask that that is reported to us or Crimestoppers.”

Greater Manchester Police can be contacted via gmp.police.uk or 101. In an emergency, always dial 999. Information about crime can also be shared anonymously via the independent charity – Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
