Operation Aardwolf continues to have strong impact in the Lincolnshire Wolds

Operation Aardwolf, the dedicated operation launched by Lincolnshire Police to tackle rural crime in the Wolds area, is continuing to have an impact.

Specialist teams of officers, PCSOs, and Special Constables - in plain clothes and high visibility uniform - have been conducting patrols and stop-checks through the night for the past few weeks.

Last Friday, as part of Op Ardwolf patrols, officers stopped a suspicious vehicle in an area where previous burglary offences had been committed.

The stop led to the arrest of two people on suspicion of burglary-related offences.

On the same night, a man was charged with driving whilst disqualified and a vehicle was seized for having no insurance.

Wolds Inspector Richard Myszczyszyn said: “We are proactively challenging all suspicious behaviour and taking robust action against offenders.

“Operation Aardwolf activity continues to generate successes and criminals visiting our county should be in no doubt of our determination to deny them the opportunity to offend.”
