Arrests in East Yorkshire crime blitz
8:20am Wednesday 9th January 2013 in News
POLICE in East Yorkshire arrested people suspected of using forged bank notes, and of domestic violence as well as a suspected illegal immigrant last month.
Sgt Pete Rogers, of Pocklington Police, said on December 2, two women were interviewed relating to the use of forged £20 notes. They have been bailed, pending further inquires.
On December 23, a man from the Pocklington area was arrested for domestic assault and on the same day a woman from the local area was arrested for drink-driving.
On Christmas Day a man from the Stamford Bridge area was arrested for a assault and criminal damage, while on December 29 a man was stopped on the A1079 and subsequently arrested for illegal entry into the country. The following day officers arrested a 17-year-old Pocklington man for criminal damage.
On New Year’s Eve, Pocklington Police arrested a man for a domestic assault and on the same day, in an unrelated incident, officers arrested a man for drink-driving in Stamford Bridge.
Police in East Yorkshire have also revealed their priorities over the next month. Sgt Rogers said they include tackling antisocial behaviour in Pocklington town centre, cracking down on youths drinking at a disused business centre in New Street and criminal damage at Pocklington Infants’ School.
He said: “Criminal offenders will be challenged robustly, arrested or reported for summons.
“Penalty notices for disorder or warning letters may be used in appropriate cases. However, those who offend should expect to be arrested and dealt with if their antisocial behaviour amounts to criminal offending. The exercise of discretion should not be expected.”
