Issued on 3/12/18 at 4:39 p.m.

An operation which targeted those who have been evading capture resulted in thirteen people being arrested.

The three-day operation – codenamed Cabriolet – was carried out in the Beaumont Leys area between Thursday 29 November and today (Monday 3 December).

The aim of the operation was to target people who were suspected of being involved in crime, wanted on warrant or needed to be recalled to prison after breaching the terms of their licence.

Thirteen people were arrested during the operation for various offences including theft, theft of motor vehicle, criminal damage, public order, distribution of indecent images of children and robbery.

Detective Chief Inspector Shaun Orton was in charge of the enforcement operation. He said: “The Operation Cabriolet enforcement activity has been carried out a number of times in the last 18 months, in the city and county, and it’s resulted in some good arrests for various offences.

“This latest phase of the operation has meant that we have located a number of people who had been evading capture. The offences they have been arrested for may not be classed as serious but it’s the low-level crime that cause the greatest harm in our communities.

“We are pleased with the results and will continue to carry out such operations across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

“If anyone has information about crime in their area they are encouraged to contact 101.”

Those arrested during the operation were dealt with as follows:-

The remaining five people, who were arrested after they were suspected of being involved in crime, were eliminated from enquiries and released from custody with no further action.
