Shoplifters targeted in new Bradford police operation
10:00am Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
Police in Bradford are targeting persistent shoplifters in a new operation.
Great and Little Horton Neighbourhood Policing Team say offenders are deliberately and repeatedly targeting shops in Bradford, with a shopping list of items they may have been requested to obtain by others.
A spokesman said: “These people are making a living from doing this and are stealing hundreds of pounds worth of stock a day.
“While some people may see this as a victimless crime, collectively we all end up paying for it as prices increase to cover the cost of the loss and extra security.
“We would like to know who is committing this type of theft? Where are the stolen items being stored? Which items and stores are being targeted?”
Anyone with information should email email@example.com or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
