Some more success

Posted in The Job - Experience by 200

We had a really good job this week.
We caught some burglars. Its always good when you catch someone in the act or making off, especially the scum distraction burglars who prey on the most vulnerable members of society.

We had a call come in from an elderly female who had just had a visit from a couple of low-lifes. They had knocked on her door given some bullshit about a neighbour having problems with a washing machine flood they were from the water board needed to come in check her plumbing.

Once in the house the first one had told the lady to check her taps turn the water on. While she was doing this a second low-life had entered via the front door, gone straight upstairs ransacked the bedroom stealing some cash from a handbag in a cupboard, some rings some medals belonging to the victims late husband.

It was at this time that the lady son had arrived.

The scum had run out the house pushing the son over legging it out of the cul-de-sac round the corner to their car.

The son had yd presence of mind to follow them while ringing us on his mobile so we had a good description of them their vehicle.

I despatched units made the decision to send a couple of them to specific points in the town.

In most cases like this we never see them again unless they are arrested somewhere down the line – which most arent. But on this occasion we must have been lucky because one of the units picked up the burglars car.

A short pursuit ensued following some tactical contact with their vehicle we had 2 distraction burglars in the bin. It was back to the nick for tea medals.

It still gives me a buzz when we get a job like that, even though I dont get to lay my hands on the bad guys, I get pleasure knowing I have done my best to make sure someone els can get the nick.

Vicarious arrests, gotta love em.

    Sounds like a job well done. Thief-taking like that must be a very satisfying aspect of the job. i hate these sorts of offenders, praying on the very weakest – the damage they do is immense, sometimes even destroying older folks confidence to live independently.

    The 2 scrotes that were caught should now be sentenced to 6 months bomb finding in Afghanistan.

    Top work, no doubt driving school will suspend you all for the tactical contact. I love reading these blogs of proper criminals getting caught, it reminds me why I joined this job

    YES!!! I love it when that happens. These bogus guys do a large number in one area before buggering off to the next in the hope of avoiding being caught. That one arrest could easilly save hundreds of similar jobs in the coming weeks.

    No doubt they will be met with the full force of the law and given either a suspended sentence or community service – after all, prison is not for criminals any more, only for council tax, etc, offenders. Several years ago, an elderly lady was subjected to such a con and she told her son who ‘worked’ in the East End of London. Some weeks later, the three lads who were suspected of the offence, but never arrested due to lack of evidence, were found in Epping Forest, with broken legs – when they ‘fell over some branches’. Some times the two sides of the law can come to the same conclusion.

    “The fascist bully boys and corrupt police scum who took part in this invasion of privacy of two law abiding citizens will be tracked down and exposed”.

    Sorry, hadn’t heard from the good Doctor for a couple of days. Couldn’t help myself.

    How can we be sure that the driving instructor is capable of making driving learners like us pass the test easily? Is there any website that we can find out the background and experience of the driving instructor? Any comparison? Please advise
