Op Liquorice

Alert message sent 19/09/2017 11:08:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Dear Resident,

Just to keep you updated in regards to Op Liquorice. There have been a series of bag snatches in the Putnoe, Goldington and Newnham area of Bedford. Offenders descriptions vary but a common theme has been suspects riding push bikes in pairs targeting elderly people and snatching their handbags from them.
We are out today completing high visibility patrols in the area to reassure residents allowing them to continue their daily business, whilst taking sensible precautions (carry your handbag diagonally across your body, keep away from poorly lit areas, walk with a friend than alone ect).

If you see us out, please speak with us and feel free to ask any questions you may have regarding this.

Kind regards,

PCSO 6749 Claire Hughes
