Thieves arrested as part of Darlington Police's Operation Mango town centre crime crackdown
A MAN wanted for theft and a woman who stole perfume and clothes were arrested as part of Darlington Police’s town centre crime crackdown.
As reported in today’s (Thursday, October 31) Northern Echo, every available police officer was drafted in to ‘surge’ the town centre on the hunt for criminals, particularly shoplifters.
The technique, part of Operation Mango, will be repeated in the weeks leading up to Christmas in an effort to prevent the expected annual rise in thefts around the festive period.
In this week’s operation, a 47-year-old drunken woman was arrested for stealing perfume from one shop and clothes from another, and a man wanted for two theft offences was also arrested.
