Arrest made in Gang Crackdown
Arrest made in Gang Crackdown
A man has been arrested following a police operation targeting organised crime groups and county lines gangs across Telford.
The operation, which was carried out early this week, saw officers targeting individuals and vehicles suspected of being involved in organised criminality, such as drug trafficking or carrying weapons.
The operation saw a 23-year-old man arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs and eight targeted stop and searches carried out. The man who was arrested has since been released under investigation.
Detective Inspector Sean Brennan, said: “The Serious Organised Crime & Exploitation Team will continue to carry out this type of work in Telford, being pro-active in the fight against organised crime.
“This was a successful operation, where we aim to tackle organised crime activity within Telford, and we will carry out exercises such as this as we continue to care and invest in the town, and show that we are always on the side of people who play by the rules.”
The operation forms part of West Mercia Police’s commitment to tackle serious and organised crime in partnership with other agencies under the Protect campaign.

Oh West Mercia are finally targeting organised crime, how about you go and arrest the 100’s of child rapists you let off?
Seen parked in Wellington on Wednesday evening and again in Arleston on Thursday. Nothing like going under the radar than a young lad in an R8 spider with a mis-spaced private plate…

I just got paid $6692 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $ 14218 her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less.

Never any posts about the rapists and groomers. Oh wait I forgot it’s west Mercia. They don’t look Into that.
Please be aware of these two persons recently seen in Telford.
Joesph and Robert Blair
They come from Birmingham and are dressed to give the impression they are veterans to gain support.
They have not earned the medals they display or the berets they wear.
Did not fall foul if their appearance
