Three people have been arrested in a police operation targeting a York suburb.
Officers took part in a ‘day of disruption’ in Clifton on Monday (13 November).
Teams patrolled the area on foot and in marked and unmarked vehicles. The aim was to target vehicles in the area which are suspected of being used in anti-social behaviour.
In total, two vehicles were seized for no insurance, six drivers were dealt with for motoring offences and three people were arrested.
- A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary
- A 25-year-old man was arrested for drug driving
- A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft, burglary, going equipped and possession of an offensive weapon.
All three have been released on conditional bail.
The crackdown was a joint operation between the York Outer Neighbourhood Policing team, the Roads Policing Group and officers from Operation Expedite.
Sergeant Stuart Henderson from the York Outer Neighbourhood Policing team said: “We hope this day of Intensification has assured residents in Clifton that we continue to be out and about tackling issues, providing positive engagement and working to keep the area safe.
“Anti-social behaviour, drugs and nuisance driving can be a blight on communities. We are doing all we can to crack down on these problems in Clifton and other communities across North Yorkshire.
“I hope that this day of enforcement sends a clear message to anyone who is involved in criminality, we will catch you and we will take the necessary action.”
