350 arrests in Lancashire on burglary blitz

First published in News

A CRACKDOWN on burglary in Lancashire has been hailed a success after 350 people were arrested.

Officers seized almost £30,000 of stolen property and visited other burglary suspects as part of the Lancashire-wide Operation Julius, which was launched in January after a rise in burglaries in the region.

The figures showed that the Eastern Division of Lancashire Constabulary received 791 reports of burglary between April 2011 and March 2011 – 11 fewer than the 802 complaints during the same period in the previous year.

Police arrested 78 people on suspicion of burglary, 45 search warrants were executed and £3510 worth of stolen property was recovered.

Pennine Division saw a 5.8 per cent fall in burglary reports over the same period, with the total number dropping from 985 in 2010-11 to 928 last year.

Assistant Chief Constable Andy Cooke said that despite the success, the fight against burglary would continue.

The real result will be if any one ( any single one) of these scrotes goes to Prison.

I know from personal experience that you can be burgled by a known druggie with previous for dropping through every shop roof in blackburn, who then commits a serious assault, drives off drunk and drugged up in his car, is found at his home address in said car , for which he has no licencee or insurance , found in possesion of stolen items , and what does he get as a sentence . NADA not even a suspended. Believe me it happened.

The courts are letting our Police Force down day after day, there is no justice for the common man. Bet if I run a red light I would get more punishment .

A burglar enters a house through a window, and hears someone/something say, “Jesus is watching!” the burglar gets nervous and stands perfectly still in the dark, waiting a couple minutes he hears nothing & decides to move.. Again he hears “Jesus is watching!”. he see's a parrot and asks, “Was that you” the parrot then says “Yes” the burglar, in relief.. asks the parrot, “What's is your name?” the parrot says “Clarence” the burglar chuckles, “Who names their parrot Clarence?” the parrot replies, “The same idiot that names their rottweiler, Jesus”

I can back that story up because I know from personal experience that someone can, get this, ring the police to inform them they have broken into a car, have their DNA found all over the rear windscreen and not even have charges pressed against them!

It was my car and when the police informed me of this at 4am, I asked why on earth anyone would ring the police to admit what they'd done. The idiot had put a breeze block through the window and in getting the goods out of the back, he'd cut his hand. No biggie normally until he discovered what I carried in the back of the car and then he panicked. A thick, no-brain moron assumed you could catch diseases from what I carry for my work and wanted the victim (me) to provide reassurances for the villain (him) and went through the police to get this reassurance!

Well he must have known the police would play ball and they went along with his requests and were on the verge of victimising me! That was the day I lost any last vestige of faith I had in these blimps.
