Bedfordshire Police say they’ve arrested nine people in the past 11 days in a crack down on robberies in Bedford.
Chief Inspector Rachael Glendenning, who leads Operation Darlaw, which is dedicated to investigating robberies in Bedford said: “We won’t tolerate these kinds of offences and we remain dedicated to protecting our communities from violent offenders.
“Hopefully the recent arrests sends a clear message that we will catch anyone who is up to no good, or who intends to commit crime in the Bedford area.
“Additionally we continue to encourage the public to come forward with reports of suspicious behaviour and report them to us.”
