12:51pm Friday 26th October 2012 in News
THREE people were arrested in Kidderminster following a police crackdown on criminals.
As part of West Mercia Police’s Citadel initiative, officers visited several addresses and locked up suspects yesterday.
One man was arrested at Kidderminster Magistrates Court and charged with two burglary offences, while a 33-year-old woman was arrested and charged with possessing class A and B drugs after a warrant was executed at York Court.
She is due to appear before Kidderminster Magistrates Court on November 8.
A 31-year-old man was also arrested and charged with theft from the Co-op store in Kidderminster and appeared at Kidderminster Magistrates Court yesterday.
He is alleged to have stolen two bottles of champagne earlier this month.
Detective Inspector John Cashion said: "The day of action was very successful and our officers will continue to tackle crime in North Worcestershire and catch offenders. We are grateful to those in our communities who supply important information to the police which we can act upon.
"Crime prevention is also an important element of the Citadel campaign and if we can help householders stop themselves becoming victims of burglars then we will. We also arranged three one stop shops across Kidderminster to offer crime prevention advice to local people."
