Merseyside Police have more success disrupting crime

MERSEYSIDE Police have recovered a stolen motorbike from flats in the Walton area of Liverpool as part of the force's ongoing initiative to disrupt criminal activity. The high powered motorbike, a 1000cc Triumph Speed Triple vrm, was stolen from a Liverpool Hotel, in May 2017. It was seized as part of Merseyside Police's ongoing activity to disrupt gun, drugs, road traffic and warrant offences.

Merseyside Police is teaming up with residents and partners to take positive action and make a real difference in local communities. As part of the ongoing disruption activity, following a number of firearms discharges, Officers have been out and about in various parts of Liverpool speaking to the public about their concerns and giving a reassuring high visibility presence.

Chief Inspector Gary O'Rourke said:- "There's strong evidence that motorbikes like this are stolen to use in more serious criminal activity. By recovering this motorbike, we have disrupted their plans and prevented a serious crime from being committed. For us, keeping our communities safe is vital. We rely on your support to assist us in making sure our communities are pleasant places to live and work. We will continue to take positive action to disrupt criminal activity. I would strongly urge all our communities to talk to our officers and help us by providing us with information about criminals in their community. We've had some great successes so far, but we can't do it on our own. In my experience, the overwhelming majority of people want to see criminals removed from our communities and, if we work together, I believe we can continue to disrupt and tackle crime."

In the latest operations to disrupt offenders, on Thursday, 29 June 2017, officers from the Matrix Unit stopped a vehicle on Maud Street, Toxteth and attended a disturbance on Warwick Street. A number of men were arrested and significant intelligence on criminal activity was gathered and is now being analysed.

Earlier this week, a number of intelligence based arrests were made in the Sefton area. 5 people were arrested in connection with a range of offences including possession of cannabis and driving while under the influence of drugs.

Chief Inspector O'Rourke added:- "We are aware that some people are finding our tactics frustrating but we make no apology for doing everything we can to prevent gun and other crime. There are unfortunately some offenders in the community who have no regard for the law and other people's safety and we'll continue to target them and disrupt their criminal activity."
