VIDEO: Police raid carried out in Boscombe as more than 138 people arrested in burglary crackdown

Bournemouth Echo: Police raid carried out in Boscombe as part of burglary crackdown Police raid carried out in Boscombe as part of burglary crackdown

SUSPECTED burglars had a rude awakening on Monday when police carried out a raid as part of Operation Castle.

Uniformed officers forced their way into a Boscombe flat where two men and a woman were arrested and taken into custody for questioning.

Officers surprised suspects in the Walpole Road property at 8am and the site was the subject of a thorough search.

See more pictures from the raid here

Operation Castle is an ongoing campaign that was given particular focus during December and January.

A total of 138 arrests were made when officers used a range of tactics in a bid to reduce break-ins to homes in Dorset.

Detective Inspector Andy Dilworth of the Bournemouth and Poole Priority Crime Team told the Daily Echo: “The operation involved a warrant, which was part of Operation Castle.

“We had information that led us to believe that persons connected with burglary lived at this address.”

A 22-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of burglary and a 33-year-old man, wanted in connection with other offences, was also arrested.

DI Dilworth said latest figures have revealed a 6.6 per cent fall in burglaries in the county in the last year.

He added: “During Operation Castle we continued to focus on targeting suspected offenders and work in partnership with other agencies.

“We also stepped up patrols in vulnerable areas and worked with neighbours and community groups to spread the crime prevention message to residents.”

He said there is still more work to do and added: “My final message to the public is do not be complacent. If you see someone acting suspiciously in your area please call us on 101 or 999 if a crime is in progress so we can send officers and investigate.”

There were a total of 115 burglaries in December and 158 in January.

According to Bournemouth council & Dorset police, in 2013 there were 59 alcohol and drug rehabilitation centres in Boscombe.

From the point of view that large numbers of burglaries are often committed by small numbers of offenders, and clearly innocent until proved guilty too, but... very well done police!

And if you are one of the very many law abiding citizens that think it is fine to pick up the occasional 'bargain item' from a dubious source or from someone with a "too good to be true story".... please please don't do it. It is demand for stolen goods which fuels the supply and perpetuates the true misery caused by burglars.

There might have been 6.6% drop in crimes in Dorset last year but I can't see that in Boscombe. Phoning 101 doesn't seem to get the police out to investigate either.

what next ?

"Police using stronger clue in an attempt to patch up some of the broken china in a corner of the china shop - bull is still running free in the other part of the shop".

As long as landlords continue to be paid top whack for renting out unfit slums then they will continue to bring in these 'undesirables' as tenants.

Taxpayers are funding this lucrative scam ... and suffering the all consequent damage.

Why don't the council deal with the causes .... too many snouts in the trough perhaps ?

Um, no, there aren't 59 Rehab centres; there are 2, the figure of 59 was the number of addresses where people attending Rehab could "potentially" be housed, these addresses would more than likely be used to house people with mental health issues or learning difficulties rather than people in rehab; it was an attempt by Bournemouth Borough Council to explain the high rate of drug related crime in the area; in reality the area had problems long before the 2 rehab units opened, that's why they were opened in that area rather than elsewhere.

There are more than 2 although some are more 'Springbourne' than Boscombe, I went to 5 visiting one private supported housing company in one morning ! Seeing as there are several companies looking after those we re talking about there re certainly 10's of properties in the locality that house individuals with drug, drink and crime histories.

You can stand by your previous comment but it's factually incorrect to state that statistic referred solely to rehab centres. The figures actually referred to any drug or alcohol rehabilitation service which included supported housing, hostels, HMOs, etc - anywhere that provided any form of service to people in recovery. That could be one person in recovery sharing a HMO with 5 other people without alcohol issues, providing accommodation helps their rehabilitation but it doesn't make that whole HMO a rehab centre.

I do however agree there are probably unscrupulous unregulated services in Boscombe. Plenty of people get away with ripping off the taxpayer in Boscombe, you just need to look at some of the accommodation available for rent! If people can find a service they can rip people off for Boscombe is the place to execute their plan.

Yes but your figures are meaningless unless you tell us how many centres there are in other similar sized towns. They may have the same or more which means Bournemouth is no different from anywhere else.

so of the 138 people arrested, how many were arrested in Boscombe? as far as i can tell from the article there were 3.

so where were the others arrested? and why not headline their location(s) with pictures from those raids?

the usual Echo smear tactics on Boscombe.

Oh dear, scrumpjack

you don't seem to be able to grasp the most basic point put forward ie that these scams are the direct responsibility of the council by their willingness to pay these extortionate rents

the fault lies with the council ... try reading the post

and as you apparently have done the necessary searching please tell us all what other subjects (beyond the criminality and social unrest in Boscombe) I have supposedly laid the blame on landlords

so, no evidence for your rather absurd claim

no attempt to even address the points made about the council's responsibility

but a rather strange attempt at name calling

No you're just boring.

And if you care to look above I showed you lots of examples but if you think I am going to spend hours cutting and pasting you can yawn off.

Not hours, just a few of other subjects (other than stated above) where I have supposedly blamed landlords. No links, no need to cut and paste .......... just simply list the subjects ... as claimed by you



ps as to the boring bit, some folk might wonder why you keep reading the posts if that is the case

what next ?

"Police using stronger clue in an attempt to patch up some of the broken china in a corner of the china shop - bull is still running free in the other part of the shop".

As long as landlords continue to be paid top whack for renting out unfit slums then they will continue to bring in these 'undesirables' as tenants.

Taxpayers are funding this lucrative scam ... and suffering the all consequent damage.

Why don't the council deal with the causes .... too many snouts in the trough perhaps ?
benefits street should be filmed in Sandbanks as that's where all the boscombe housing benefit ends up.

so of the 138 people arrested, how many were arrested in Boscombe? as far as i can tell from the article there were 3.

so where were the others arrested? and why not headline their location(s) with pictures from those raids?

the usual Echo smear tactics on Boscombe.
You don't expect the ECHO to report fairly or not massage the truth?

Mention Boscombe & it'll bring the 'It's all Boscombes fault 'brigade' out.

Pathetic dodgy reporting.
