Gloves off in Op Rocky

Burglars and car thieves are to be targeted in a new police campaign launched in Ripley tomorrow.

Operation Rocky is a month-long operation which will also target anti-social behaviour around the Halloween and Bonfire Night period.

One of the key themes of the operation is ‘Dirty Cash’ which appeals for information on those who people suspect are prospering from crime.

It will be launched in Ripley Market Place on Friday where shoppers will be able to see some of the items seized from criminals in the last year. It also will target cross-border criminals and a crackdown on drugs.
