Police in Tilbury arrested two people this week, as part of their continued crack down and disruption of burglary and drugs. As part of Operation Agile, officers from Tilbury neighbourhood policing team executed four warrants early this week.
Addresses in Adelaide Road, St Chads Road, Tennyson Walk and Parkside Avenue were all targeted. A number of items were seized and a quantity of a class B drug was also recovered.
Tilbury neighbourhood Inspector, Jon Burgess, said: “We simply won’t tolerate people committing crime for selfish gain or to fund drugs habits.
“The suffering and trauma that victims go through after a burglary is relentless, so we will be relentless in our pursuit of the handful of prolific criminals that we suspect to be responsible.”
Insp Burgess is also keen for residents to come forward with information on who is committing crime in the area. He added: “Whilst we believe we know who is responsible for some of the crimes, we need people to put pen to paper to help secure convictions. I appreciate this takes a lot of courage, but this is another way to ensure justice is served on those that deserve it.
A 14-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of burglary and was bailed until Monday, August 23. A 20-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft and possession of a class B substance, and is currently in police custody being questioned.
Two people were also arrested after three warrants were executed on Wednesday, June 30.
