Two women have been charged following enforcement activity at the Dunroamin site, Whitfield, yesterday (Monday, February 19).
Tilda Doherty, 47, has been charged with four counts of theft and Tilda Devlin, 18, has been charged with one count of theft. They will both appear at Northampton Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, March 22. Four males aged 48, 26, 17 and 16 have been bailed until Friday, February 23.
During the operation yesterday, led by neighbourhood officers and supported by detectives and search teams, police seized approximately 30 number plates, three vehicles, a large amount of cash, 16 phones, clothing, jewellery and a large number of tools.
Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant, Micki Simons, said: “Northamptonshire Police is committed to protecting people from harm and we do not underestimate the damage caused to people’s livelihoods when items like tools are stolen from them.
“I’m really pleased at the success we have had with this operation so far which has seen two people charged, another four arrested and a large number of items recovered.
“The scale of the operation, offences being investigated and the number of items seized mean that there are a large number of inquiries outstanding. It will take some time to catalogue and identify the items recovered so I would ask the public to please bear with us while we do this.”
