More than 15 people were arrested in Harrow as part of an operation targeting burglary, theft and other offences across the capital.

Police took part in raids around Harrow as part of Operation Big Wing last week and carried out other crime prevention activities such as random car checks to tackle motoring offences.

A total of 16 people were arrested in the borough, including two for immigration offences, two for possession of a class A drug with intent to supply and one for domestic abuse.

Other arrests included one person was arrested for being drunk while in charge of a motor vehicle, another for fraud and one was arrested for burglary.

Commander Mak Chishty, who was leading the operation, said: "These results demonstrate our commitment to driving down crime and its generators in London.

"Crimes like burglary, robbery and theft have a huge impact on the people who are victims.

"Work continues day in and day out to target those responsible and the networks they use to sell on stolen property, but big highly visible operations like this play a major part in the fight against crime and demonstrates there is no hiding place for criminals."

Across the whole of London police made more than 630 arrests, ranging from offences of burglary, theft, drugs, the handling of stolen goods, fraud, and robbery.

Well done to the police for removing these people from Harrow's streets. Let us hope that when these criminals appear in court the public and police are not let down by feeble sentencing.

This is brilliant work from Harrow Police and the Met.Commander Chisty must be really pleased with the results.Operation Big Wing has been a real success,London-wide.


I really hope after all the effort and energy expended by our local cops our Courts also back them a hundred percent and hand out sentences which reflect the gravity of their crimes,sending out clear messages to the criminal fraternity that crime does not pay.

The public are fed up of being "let down " so many times by our Courts.Let's hope this trend is being reversed and the perpetrators are made to feel the consequences of their actions,so they think long and hard before embarking on their nasty pursuits.

Well done,Harrow Police.Keep up the good work.
