45 Year-Old Mark Rayner Jailed For 15 Years
Motorists Stopped and Searched In Herts
Hertfordshire Police carried out around 25 stop and search operations on motorists yesterday.
Drivers were pulled over in the Truck Stop on the A5 near Flamstead.
It was part of operation Scorpion aimed at tackling metal thefts in the county
Police suspect that stolen metal is now being taken out of the country using popular routes like the M1 so yesterday’s operation was aimed stopping those vehicles used in the transportation.
No stolen metal was found but police did make two arrests.
One man was found with a stolen trailer and red diesel
Another had a passenger with an expired visa and who was wanted by the UK Borders Agency.
Inspector Paul Lawrence told Heart the operation was a success because even though they didn't catch any metal thieves they did manage to issue a number of penalties, warnings and educate drives on what documentation they should have.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
