Another round of early morning raids by Surrey Police saw yet more Feltham residents taken into custody today accused of robberies, burglaries and car thefts.
Eight people were taken into custody as warrants were executed across Feltham, Stanwell, Addlestone, Ashford and Maidenhead in an attempt to break up a 'network of criminality'.
The raids are part of the ongoing Operation Shield campaign, designed to protect Surrey's residents and businesses against criminals invading from outside the county.
Those targeted this week are believed to be responsible for robberies, burglaries and the thefts of high value cars, often in excess of £50,000 in value. Detectives have already recovered 16 vehicles including one used in a robbery.
Detective Chief Inspector Gary Sumner, the officer leading Tuesday's operation, commented: "This morning's activities are part of an ongoing programme in which we are targeting the most active travelling criminals.
"If you live outside Surrey but commit crime in Surrey, do not sleep soundly because you can expect an early morning call as your criminal activities catch up with you."
