A SPATE of drugs offences and burglaries has seen police forces across the South East make nearly 100 arrests in the space of two days.

The joint operation between Thames Valley Police, Hertfordshire Constabulary, The Metropolitan Police and Surrey Police took place between September 10 and 12, focusing on major road networks in the south east.

Police officers from the forces' proactive and roads policing teams worked together patrolling the road networks, supported by a joint intelligence team who also monitored ANPR cameras across all force areas.

Over the three day operation, 95 people were arrested on suspicion of offences including possession with intent to supply class A drugs, conspiracy to burgle and handling stolen goods.

The 95 arrests also included a number of individuals who were wanted for offences including aggravated burglary.

A total of 10 people have since been charged for the offences.

Detective Inspector Andy Alexander, tactical commander for the operation, said: “I am pleased that we have been able to work with a large number of colleagues across the south east for this three day operation.

“Working collaboratively is a priority for us all as we work to keep our communities safe. We will continue to work together as we investigate these offences fully."

Thames Valley Police have been contacted for details of the charges.
