(LONDON) MET Operation Eternal Report: Five men have been arrested today (January.12th) by Specialist Crime detectives following proactive warrants under one of the Met’s most significant operations in cracking down on serious and organised crime #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.14: In the early hours of Wednesday, 12 January, officers arrested the men at addresses in Islington, Barking, Chelmsford, Dartford and Bexleyheath, as part of this operation focusing on drugs supply: These arrests were carried out following an investigation into the wholesale of drugs through a highly encrypted communication platform.

#AceDailyNews MET UPDATE Report: Five arrests for drug offences following early morning warrants: During searches of the properties, officers recovered more than £2,000 in cash, a large quantity of Class B drugs (cannabis) and 14 wraps of Class A drugs – these substances have been sent for analysis.

[Cannabis recovered during the warrants]

Those arrested are:

  • A 44-year-old man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply cocaine and heroin.
  • A 26-year-old man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply cocaine.
  • A 35-year-old man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply cocaine and cannabis.
  • A 30-year-old man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply and import cocaine and cannabis.
  • A 38-year-old man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply cocaine and transfer criminal property.

They all remain in police custody while investigations continue.

Operation Eternal is the Met’s long-term investigation into the criminal use of encrypted communications to facilitate serious violence, supply of firearms, drugs and associated criminality. 

Specialist detectives across the Met have worked relentlessly to form investigations around those utilising this encryption to commit some of the most serious crimes across the capital. They have monitored hundreds of handsets and analysed thousands of encrypted messages to build dozens of cases.

Detective Chief Inspector Driss Hayoukane, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Team, said:

The Met continues to work to bring those criminals using encrypted devices to commit serious and violent crimes – whilst believing they are untouchable – to justice.

“Operation Eternal has allowed us to reach those most dangerous, high harm offenders individuals right at the heart of organised networks dealing in multiple kilos of drugs, cutting off supply and associated violence right at the source.

“We know that drug supply and violence on our streets are inextricably linked. Those involved cause misery to our communities, and we remain dedicated to bringing them before the courts. Activity to tackle organised criminality in London has long been a priority for the Metropolitan Police, and it will continue to be for the coming years.”

(LONDON) MET Winters Night Operation Report: Officers from across the Met increased their activity to clamp down on violence with 2,000 arrests #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.13: These results were achieved by officers deploying to hotspot locations to tackle violence and robbery in the run up to Christmas. Officers flooded specific areas based on intelligence, and carried out proactive operations to prevent these crimes from happening in the first place.

#AceDailyNews MET Officers Crackdown on violent crime during festive season results in 2,000 arrests

Officers carrying out high visibility patrols

13 January 2022 06:00

The five-week operation, which ran between 1 December and 9 January, resulted in:

111 knives removed from the streets;

66 other offensive weapons seized;

14 firearms recovered;

402 other illegal items, such as drugs, seized:

3,041 engagements, including community meetings and events with young people, where officers listened to local concerns and gave crime prevention advice;

385 licensing visits, to ensure these premises are a safe environment, helping to reduce night time economy crime;

2,048 arrests for various violence-related offences, including sexual offences.

There was a strong focus on tackling violence against women and girls and preventing predatory offending. High-visibility patrols were carried out to reassure local communities and protect the public, and officers worked alongside the newly-formed Town Centre Teams to target alcohol-related crime within the night time economy.

Officers also cracked down on high harm offenders, carrying out 95 arrest warrants, as well as conducting numerous weapon sweeps to find hidden or discarded weapons.

Commander Alex Murray, the Met’s violence lead, said:

” The festive season can bring unique challenges to policing, however our top priority continues to be suppressing violence; stopping people getting hurt; and saving lives.

“Winter Nights was an extension of our ongoing activity, and last year we saw positive reductions across violent crime categories, including a 32 per cent decrease in knife crime*. We are absolutely determined to maintain that downward trend as we head into 2022.

“To help us achieve this, it is crucial that Londoners tell us, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, about any information they have about violent crime. We must all work together to stop violence and the devastation it causes to families and wider communities.”

+

Last year, January to December 2021 (Calendar Year), compared to the same period prior to the pandemic in 2019, saw:

Homicides decrease by 13% (19 fewer victims) 

Knife crime decrease by 32% (4,914 fewer offences) 

Knife crime with injury decrease by 20% (790 fewer victims)

Personal robbery knife injury decrease by 34% (186 fewer victims) 

Gun crime decrease by 35% (741 fewer offences) 

Lethal barrel discharges decrease by 21% (58 fewer offences) 

Despite these reductions, we know there is more to do. Our determination to tackle these crimes remains strong and we will continue to work with our partners, and use every power and tactic available, to serve and protect our communities.

(WASHINGTON) DOJ/U.S. Marshals Justice Report: Arrests Of More Than 6,000 Murder Suspects in 2021 And Over 84,000 Fugitives Have Been Apprehended #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.06: Justice Dept provides the years US Marshalls arrests, fugitives, weapon seizures and warrants issued in 2021:

#AceDailyNews DOJ/USMS Report: The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) arrested 84,247 fugitives (27,399 on federal and 56,848 on state and local warrants) in Fiscal Year 2021. On average, the agency arrested 337 fugitives per day (based on 250 operational days).

That number breaks down as follows:

  • Sex offenders – 10,510 (Sex offenses include sexual assault, failure to register/noncompliance with the national sex offender registry and other offenses.)
  • Gang members – 6,240
  • Homicide suspects – 6,119
  • International/foreign fugitives – 1,239 (A foreign fugitive is wanted by a foreign nation and believed to be in the United States.)     
  • Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces Program (OCDETF) fugitives – 1,002 (OCDETF cases combine the resources and expertise of numerous federal agencies to target drug trafficking and money laundering organizations.)
  • Adam Walsh Act violations – 278 (The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act (AWA) categorized sex offenders into a three-tiered system based on the crime committed and requires offenders to maintain their registration information accordingly. For example, Tier 3 offenders – the most serious – must update their whereabouts every three months with lifetime registration requirements.)
  • “15 Most Wanted” fugitives – 1

Additionally, the USMS seized 7,028 guns during numerous violence reduction and counter gang operations in FY21.

“The outstanding work this year by the U.S. Marshals Service exemplifies that the Department of Justice has no higher priority than keeping our communities safe,” said Deputy Attorney General Lisa O. Monaco. “At a time of unprecedented challenges posed by a global pandemic, the U.S. Marshals continue to deliver on their mission, tracking down and arresting more than 84,000 fugitives. The Department of Justice, through our law enforcement components like the U.S. Marshals Service, will continue to prioritize our efforts to reduce violent crime and keep our neighborhoods safe.”

“I want to thank the men and women of the U.S. Marshals Service for their continued commitment and dedication to public safety,” said Director Ronald Davis of the U.S. Marshals Service. “Their steadfast courage and selfless service in bringing fugitives to justice and in protecting our judicial process help to make all of our communities safer and is critical in preserving our democracy.”

Total warrants cleared by USMS arrests: 99,607

  • State and local warrants – 64,565
  • Federal warrants – 35,042

The number of warrants cleared nearly always exceeds the number of arrests in a given year because fugitives are often wanted on numerous warrants, and a single arrest can clear them all at once.

The USMS has a long history of providing assistance and expertise to other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in support of their fugitive investigations. The USMS leads 56 fugitive task forces (representing more than 1,500 law enforcement agencies) throughout the United States and eight congressionally-funded regional fugitive task forces. Staffed by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, USMS-led task forces target the most dangerous fugitives.

The USMS established the 15 Most Wanted Fugitive Program in 1983 in an effort to prioritize the investigation and apprehension of high-profile offenders considered to be some of the country’s most dangerous fugitives – typically career criminals with histories of violence who pose a significant threat to public safety and have remained on the lam for months or years.

On Oct. 6, 2021, the USMS made a 15 Most Wanted fugitive arrest of Jory Worthen, wanted in Camden, Arkansas, for two homicides in June 2019. Worthen was accused of murdering his girlfriend Alyssa and her 4-year-old son Braydon. Immediately after the murders, Worthen fled in Alyssa’s vehicle, which was later found abandoned in a parking lot in Seattle. The investigation led to Burbank, California, where Worthen was located and arrested after a short foot pursuit. He was extradited back to Arkansas where, in September, Worthen accepted a plea deal that includes never being eligible for parole. As part of the agreement, Worthen pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder. He is serving two concurrent life sentences.

July 27, 2021, marked the 15th anniversary of the signing of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act (AWA), which established the USMS as the lead federal agency for sex offender violations. The agency created the Sex Offender Investigations Branch to direct and coordinate implementation of its primary responsibilities under the AWA – assisting state, local, Tribal and territorial authorities in the location and apprehension of noncompliant and fugitive sex offenders; investigating violations of the AWA for federal prosecution; and assisting in the identification and location of sex offenders relocated as a result of a major disaster. In 2021, USMS arrested 278 sex offenders for violating the conditions of their criminal convictions.

In May 2015, the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (JVTA) was passed and clarified the USMS’ discretionary authority to support law enforcement requests for assistance on any missing child cases. As such, the USMS assists state, local and other federal law enforcement agencies, upon request, in locating and recovering missing children, while focusing agency resources on “critically missing child” cases – those that involve a suspected crime of violence or where factors are identified by law enforcement that indicates an elevated risk to a missing child. In 2021, the Marshals assisted with the recovery of 950 “critically missing children,” an approximate 145% increase over FY 2020.  

The USMS also conducted 591 international removals (extraditions, deportations and expulsions). The USMS is responsible for carrying out extraditions to the United States from foreign countries and for supporting extraditions to foreign countries from the United States – a complex task involving coordination among the Department of Justice Office of International Affairs, the Department of State, foreign governments, U.S. embassies and USMS district offices. The extradition process involves country clearances, threat assessments and security arrangements, travel arrangements, and can include medical assessments and accommodations.

(LONDON) BTP REPORT: This month marks two years on from the beginning of the British Transport Police County Lines Taskforce, having been setup with Home Office funding in December 2019 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.16: It was created to disrupt and apprehend criminals using the railway to move drugs across England, Scotland and Wales and safeguard the vulnerable children and adults exploited in this activity.

#AceDailyNews BTP Report: In that time the team have made more than 1,600 arrests and seized 1,021 lots of drugs, £610k in cash and removed 345 dangerous weapons from the rail network.

Individuals encountered by BTP officers caught up in this crime type when the Taskforce was first formed were, on average, 18-years-old – significantly lower than the national average of 26-years-old.

Detectives have used the Modern Slavery Act, introduced in 2015, to ensure those exploiting individuals in their drugs supply business received suitably severe punishment for their crimes.

As recently as October three people appeared at court charged in connection to offences under the Modern Slavery Act after a 16-year-old boy was caught in possession of Class A drugs on the railway.

This is not a unique example – the team has secured 18 charges under the Modern Slavery Act over the two-year period.

Additionally, 82 vulnerable children and adults identified by officers have been referred into the National Referral Mechanism for safeguarding.

The Taskforce now totals 68 police officers and staff with expertise added from social and charity sectors in the form of two full-time social workers and two staff members seconded from The Children’s Society.

These additions have further enhanced the team’s focus on safeguarding, ensuring the victims exploited by County Lines gangs get the support required to get them out of harm’s way.

Detective Superintendent Gareth Williams, BTP’s County Lines Taskforce lead, said:

” From the outset we knew we had to approach our work with safeguarding as a top priority given the young ages of nominals encountered moving drugs on the railway.

“Around 40 per cent of those we’ve arrested over the two years have been under 18-years-old, however we’ve only criminalised one in five of them.

“We’re not looking to criminalise young people, we see them first as victims and are devoted to getting them out of the clutches of toxic gangs exploiting them for their own financial gain.

“Our intelligence-led operations and investigations have resulted in countless drug suppliers behind bars, county lines dismantled and cut off the supply of harmful drugs into our communities.

“The work doesn’t stop here – we’re dedicated to continuing to work closely with our police colleagues and the rail industry to pursue offenders, bring their criminal enterprises to the ground and incarcerate them.”

Crime & Policing Minister, Kit Malthouse, said:

” The BTP taskforce has done fantastic work combatting County Lines over the past two years.

“Together with our policing partners we have made huge strides dismantling the vile gangs peddling drugs into our communities, closing down over 1,500 county lines, making over 7,400 arrests and safeguarding more than 4,000 vulnerable adults and children.

“These criminals need to know that we’re not stopping here. Gripping the transport network is a key part of our ambitious 10-year Drugs Strategy, so we’ll be extending the dedicated BTP County Lines Taskforce and making the rail network a high-risk place for these organised crime gangs to conduct their business.”https://www.youtube.com/embed/71qtIuKj3zA?enablejsapi=1&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.btp.police.uk

Case Study:

BTP assisted the Metropolitan Police Service with a missing person inquiry involving a child, who was thought to have left London and forced to work for a county lines gang to clear their debt. The young person was already the subject of a modern slavery investigation in ‘County A’ having previously been located at a ‘cuckooed address’.

As the young person was believed to be travelling by train, BTP’s County Lines Taskforce conducted enquiries and identified that the young person had travelled to ‘County B’ and was being held at a local Class A drug user’s address. A search of the address by BTP found not only the child, but also a significant quantity of Class A drugs and a mobile phone deemed to be operating a county line.

BTP’s investigation resulted in three people being arrested for human trafficking and drug supply, supported by a statement from the young person about their experience and exploitation. The child has since been actively engaged with social services and is no longer involved in county lines. The registered occupier of the ‘cuckooed’ address in ‘County B’ was also safeguarded as a vulnerable adult.

#AceNewsReport – Sept.03: Between Monday, 16 August and Sunday, 29 August, officers stopped and tested 241 people across the capital. Of these, 53 people were arrested. ….

#AceDailyNews reports that more than 50 arrests as part of campaign against drug driving Officers from the Met’s Road and Transport Policing Command carried out dedicated patrols across London, focussed on stopping drivers who put others at risk by driving while under the influence of drugs.

The dedicated patrols also educated drivers about the risk of driving while under the influence of drugs in a bid to reduce the number of fatalities and collisions that result in serious injury.

PC Jeremy Dunlop, from the Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “There is absolutely no reason for anyone to be driving a vehicle after taking drugs. It is reckless and totally unnecessary.

“I would like to reassure the public that, while this campaign has ended, we remain committed to stopping this behaviour and removing dangerous drivers from London’s roads. 

“Our message is clear. It is your responsibility to drive safely. Don’t put yourself or anyone else in danger. If you do, you can expect to face the full consequences of your actions in court.” 

In June 2019, an 85-year-old pedestrian was struck down and killed by a driver who had taken cocaine before getting behind the wheel. 

Reuben Armstrong was walking to his sister’s house when the collision happened. Last month, Tina Nowland was jailed for more than four years at Kingston Crown Court. 

Caroline Lashley, Reuben’s niece, said: “The minute you start taking things like cannabis, cocaine, speed, whatever, you’ve got no control: You are driving a vehicle. You are on the road. You are putting yourself and others at risk, which is basically what my uncle came up against. My uncle had a right to live: You cannot always account for other people, but you can account for yourself.”

If you have concerns about someone driving while under the influences of drug or alcohol, please call us on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymous on 0800 555 111. Always dial 999 in an emergency.

(LONDON) MET Predatory Offenders Unit (POU) Report: Thousands of the capitals highest harm offenders have been detected and arrested in a crackdown since its launch last November #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.22: The Predatory Offender Units (POU) were launched in November last year and have since arrested more than 2,150 ‘high harm’ offenders. These include 1,312 arrests for domestic abuse offences, 378 for sex offences and 115 for child abuse offences….

#AceDailyNews reports that Met officers from its ‘Predatory Offenders Unit ‘ arrest more than 2,000-highest harm offenders including cases of domestic abuse, sex and child abuse offences

A bespoke online reporting system was also launch for domestic abuse. To date we have received 375 domestic abuse online reports since going live at the end of June.

Additionally, they have obtained 154 Judicial Restrictions and executed 175 search warrants.

Each Basic Command Unit (BCU) has a team determined to bringing violent perpetrators to justice. They use a range of tactics and work closely with other forces and enforcement agencies to develop intelligence, even if they are outside of London.

The 12 teams consist of around 90 highly trained officers who work alongside the Met’s Public Protection teams and together they focus on bringing some of the highest offenders in our capital to justice. These individuals inflict serious and often hidden harm on their victim.

A female survivor of domestic abuse, from east London, said: “On what was the hardest day of my life, the support the police gave me and the trust I was able to put in them gave me the strength to push forward with the case and achieve the best possible outcome from a horrible situation.”……..

Examples of the POU detection achievements from across London include:

Two men who committed atrocious crimes including attempted sexual assault, grievous bodily harm and aggravated burglary were arrested and charged and POU officers worked tirelessly to locate the offenders through phone intelligence, CCTV analysis and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) detection.

Both men have been remanded and await trial.

In north London, a serial domestic abuse perpetrator with multiple victims was traced and arrested. This arrest was only possible through the persistent and dedicated approach adopted by the POU officers supported by partners from Communication Intelligence Unit (CIU) and Public Protections arrest team.

A single POU officer conducted recces at hotels to trace an outstanding nominal who was wanted for several months for violent breaches of his non-molestation order. He was located by the officer and later charged and remanded in custody.

Commander Melanie Dales, the Met’s lead for Public Protection, said: “Tackling violent offences continues to be the Met’s priority. These offenders often inflict horrendous crimes on their victim, they can include anything from domestic and child abuse, sexual exploitation and human trafficking: Since the beginning of the pandemic we have been very much aware of the risks the restrictions and lack of contact with others could pose especially in a domestic setting: The implementation of these teams has enhanced our ability to prevent and disrupt offending and we will ensure this work continues with intensity: I would urge anyone who may be at risk of becoming a victim, or has concerns about a family member, friend or colleague to contact us.”……The Met has continued enhancing its response and support to victims of domestic abuse across London. In collaboration with SafeLives charity more than 3,000 frontline officers have now received Domestic Abuse Matters training since its launch last month. This training will help to ensure officers can identify and gather evidence of coercive controlling behaviour, recognise perpetrator tactics and understand the dynamics of domestic abuse.

Sophie Linden, Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, said: “From supporting victims to bringing perpetrators to justice, the Mayor and I are determined to do everything we can to ensure that victims get the support they need and that dangerous offenders are dealt with: The Met’s Predatory Offender Units have seen strong results by bearing down on offenders of domestic abuse, working to protect survivors and bringing perpetrators to justice. The Met has continued to make responding to domestic abuse a priority throughout the pandemic and I want to send a clear message to anyone feeling threatened or unsafe: please come forward and report it, you will be listened to and you can have the confidence that the crime will be investigated.”…….

(LONDON) MET Operation Pandilla Report: A targeted violence operation to intercept criminals bringing weapons and drugs onto the capitals streets has concluded #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.12: Operation Pandilla aims to disrupt high harm offenders using the roads in and out of London by using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology. ANPR is a camera that is linked to a computer. When a vehicle passes the camera it records an image which is automatically ‘read’ by the computer and the vehicle registration is recorded…..

#AceDailyNews reports that more than 40 arrests and 10 weapons removed in summer crackdown on violent crime as officers were on the lookout for vehicles linked to county lines, gangs and weapons travelling into areas blighted by street violence.

Coordinated by the Violent Crime Task Force, other teams including the Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC), Taskforce and the Dog Support Unit supported the intensified effort over three days (Tuesday, 3 to Thursday, 5 August). 

The Met teamed up with county forces including Surrey, Thames Valley, Kent, Hertfordshire, City of London and Essex Police to work together to apprehend criminals using the road networks in and around the capital. 

In London there were:

  • 46 arrests for offences including possession of an offensive weapon and possession with intent to supply Class A drugs; 
  • 10 weapons seized; 
  • 22 amounts of drugs recovered; 
  • 20 other illegal items seized. 

Acting Inspector Adam Cook, of the Violent Crime Task Force,coordinated the operation in London. He said: “Now we’ve come out of lockdown it is our absolute top priority to reduce violence and keep our communities safe over the summer period. 

“Operation Pandilla was focused in specific areas where we know violence occurs. Our approach was targeted and led by intelligence coupled with ANPR, allowing us to stop those intent on causing harm to communities. 

“Many of those arrested are dangerous individuals who exploit vulnerable people down a path of violence. Safeguarding is at the forefront of our minds and diversionary help and support was offered to every individual who was arrested. 

“We know drugs are inextricably linked to street violence and at the heart of our policing plan this summer we are directly bearing down on what matters most to Londoners. 

“The police cannot tackle violence alone. We need communities to tell us what they know. I urge anyone with information about violence and drug crime to report in confidence to the independent charity Crimestoppers, it is 100 per cent anonymous.” 

+ If you have any information about violent crime, please contact police or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 – your anonymity is guaranteed. They are a totally independent of police and you remain 100 per cent anonymous, they never ask your name and they cannot trace your call, your IP address or device you use. 

No detail you might have is too small – every bit of information helps towards the fight against knife crime in London.

Demonstrators clash with riot police during a protest against President Ivan Duque’s government on Bolivar Square in Bogota on 5 May 2021.

Rallies in Colombia against an increase in gas prices and utility bills as part of state-proposed tax reform have been underway since 28 April. Despite President Ivan Duque withdrawing the controversial reform on Sunday, protesters have continued to rally across the country. Demonstrators are now demanding a review of the sanitary emergency and health care reform, the dissolution of the ESMAD riot police, demilitarization of cities and punishing those responsible for killing protesters.

At least 31 protesters were killed, 1,220 were injured and 87 went missing in the first week of protests against the tax reform, according to the Colombian Institute for Development and Peace Studies. The United Nations condemned the use of violence against protesters.

(LONDON) MET Violent Crime Taskforce Report: As part of Met-wide efforts to drive down violence and related crime, a proactive operation in Croydon and Bromley has resulted in 154 arrests and the recovery of a number of offensive weapons #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.29: Between February and April, officers from various commands across the Met carried out a series of patrols and weapon sweeps. Specialist drug detection dogs and Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology were also used to reassure local communities as part of efforts to prevent and respond to violence in all its forms:

MET Crackdown: Over 150 arrests made in 3-month op to tackle violence in south London: In response to a spate of unrelated stabbings on the borough, the Violent Crime Taskforce (VCTF) joined local officers over a ten-week period to provide additional resilience, supporting the borough and mitigating the threat caused by serious violence.

[Stock image]

A total of 289 stops were carried out, leading to the arrest of 154 individuals for offences including possession of an offensive weapon and possession with intent to supply Class A drugs: Numerous weapons were recovered during the operation, including a firearm and 29 knives.

As the result of one stop in Croydon Road, Penge on 3 February, two males were searched and found to have drugs on them; this led to the search of a nearby address they were linked to and officers recovered over £18,000 in cash.

On 11 February officers located a vehicle in the Bromley area which had been linked to an earlier incident involving criminal damage to a car. Two males were arrested after a large machete, baseball bat, and sling shot with ball bearings were found inside the vehicle.

Officers discovered the gun during the search of a Purley address on 17 March. A large quantity of suspected Class A drugs were also found. Two males were arrested at the property.

Inspector Leon Coltress, from the VCTF, said: “What we are able to do with our resources is to swiftly mobilise a specialised team of highly trained officers to deal directly with an emerging issue in any area of London. 

“The results following this recent focus in Croydon and Bromley are plain to see. It is clear this activity has had a significant impact on efforts to tackle violent crime in the area. The significant number of arrests also demonstrates the value of intelligence-led stop and search. 

“Residents will have seen officers not only dealing with but also preventing crime, and will hopefully have been reassured by their presence and felt safer as a result. It’s essential we all work together to help protect our communities.”

This was a joint operation involving proactive activity by Violence Suppression Units, the Violent Crime Taskforce, Dogs Support Unit, Armed Response Vehicles and the Roads and Transport Policing Command.

Hard calls save lives. Are you close to someone on the fringes of knife crime? Do the right thing, please give information, 100 per cent anonymously, through the independent charity Crimestoppers. 

No piece of information about knife crime is insignificant or too small. Any information you give to Crimestoppers can make a difference in reducing knife crime and the harm it causes to families.

(BELFAST, N.I) PSNI REPORT: Police have made two arrests in relation to an incident in Coalisland in the early hours of Saturday 17th April during which a police officer was injured and a suspected cannabis factory was subsequently discovered #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.20: As part of follow-up enquiries, a search of a property at an address in Coalisland was carried out where a suspected cannabis factory and a quantity of suspected Class B drugs, with an estimated street value of almost £17,000, and other items, including drug-related paraphernalia, were seized. They have been taken away and will be subject to further examination.

PSNI Officers Arrests made after suspected cannabis factory discovered: ‘Police responded to a report of a suspected burglary in progress at an address on Dungannon Road at around 12:50am. Two male suspects were located in the vicinity and, as one of the officers attempted to detain one of the suspects, a male officer was punched’

Coalisland_ (2).png

A 41-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of offences, including burglary, handling stolen goods, possession of a Class B controlled drug, cultivating cannabis, assault on police and resisting police. A 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of offences, including burglary, handling stolen goods, cultivating cannabis and possession of a Class B drug with intent to supply. Both men remain in custody, at this time, assisting police with enquiries.

Inspector Cochrane said: “The officer who was assaulted was taken to hospital as a precaution and is expected to return to duty today. However, what happened to our officer must be condemned. This morning, our colleague was working to keep people safe when he was assaulted. It’s completely unacceptable and must never be tolerated.”

Inspector Cochrane is appealing to anyone who may have been in the Dungannon Road area around 12:45am to 12:50am and saw any suspicious activity to call 101, and quote reference number 77 of 17/04/21. You can also submit a report online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/ Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.

Inspector Cochrane added: “I want to take this opportunity to thank the member of public who made the report about the suspected burglary in progress to us. I would also take this opportunity to encourage anyone who sees any unusual or suspicious activity in their area to call us: “ The public can be assured we are committed to tackling the illegal supply and use of drugs, and we will continue to investigate those who profit from the consequent misery and harm, and I would ask any member who has any information about drugs or drug-dealing in their community to call us so we can take action. That call could make all the difference.” [16/04/21] Male arrested on suspicion of fraud following call from relative

#AceNewsReport – Apr.15: Friday afternoon, McAllen Border Patrol (MCS) agents apprehended a group of 14 illegal aliens near Hidalgo, Texas. During processing, agents discovered that one subject, a Honduran national, had a prior arrest by the Brooklyn Park Police Department (BPPD) in New York in 2018.

(MINNESOTA) Daunte Wright Shooting Report: About 40 people were arrested just north of Minneapolis in a second night of unrest over the police shooting of a black man George Floyd trial continues #AceNewsDesk report

Daunte Wright shooting: Dozens arrested in fresh unrest in Minnesota: Protesters in the city of Brooklyn Center defied a curfew and threw objects at police, who responded with flash grenades and tear gas after 17 hours ago: Police release footage of arrest and shooting’

This report contains strong language: In a courtroom just a few miles away, ex-police officer Derek Chauvin is charged with murdering the African American man in May last year.

Demonstrators take cover from crowd-dispersal munitions from police outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department while protesting the shooting death of Daunte Wright, late Tuesday, April 13, 2021, in Brooklyn Center, Minn. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)

Police said Daunte Wright, 20, was shot and died after an officer mistook her gun for a Taser during a traffic stop: The shooting came as the high-profile George Floyd murder trial continues.

Derek Chauvin’s defence team on Monday asked for jury members to be sequestered – separated from other people – as they might be swayed by the latest events. The judge denied the request.

Prosecutors expect to decide Wednesday whether to charge a white former police officer who fatally shot a Black man during a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb, sparking nights of protests and raising tensions amid the <a href=”https://apnews.com/article/police-trials-minneapolis-racial-injustice-death-of-george-floyd-877dc5632fc03037131977c61af6865d”>nearby murder trial</a> of the ex-officer charged with killing George Floyd.Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter and Police Chief Tim Gannon <a href=”https://apnews.com/73b1af26c9ed5d437988d8d1c72bb311″>resigned Tuesday</a>, two days after Potter shot 20-year-old Daunte Wright. Gannon has said he believed Potter mistakenly grabbed her pistol when she was trying to pull out her Taser.Brooklyn Center <a href=”https://apnews.com/article/race-and-ethnicity-death-of-daunte-wright-liberia-shootings-police-0937e6536a5a3ce28ec5d20cb336565f”>Mayor Mike Elliott</a> said at a news conference that the city had been moving toward firing Potter, a 26-year veteran, when she resigned.

Elliott said he hoped her resignation would “bring some calm to the community,” but that he would keep working toward “full accountability under the law.”Washington County Attorney Pete Orput told WCCO-AM that he had received information on the case from state investigators and hoped to have a charging decision on Wednesday. Orput did not respond to a message from The Associated Press. While the shooting happened in Hennepin County, prosecutors referred the case to nearby Washington County — a practice county attorneys in the Minneapolis area adopted last year in handling police deadly force cases.“We have to make sure that justice is served, justice is done. Daunte Wright deserves that. His family deserves that,” Elliott said.But police and protesters faced off once again after nightfall Tuesday, with hundreds of protesters gathering again at Brooklyn Center’s heavily guarded police headquarters, now ringed by concrete barriers and a tall metal fence, and where police in riot gear and National Guard soldiers stood watch.

About 90 minutes before a 10 p.m. curfew, state police announced over a loudspeaker that the gathering had been declared unlawful and ordered the crowds to disperse. That quickly set off confrontations, with protesters launching fireworks toward the station and throwing objects at police, who launched flashbangs and gas grenades, and then marched in a line to force back the crowd.“You are hereby ordered to disperse,” authorities announced, warning that anyone not leaving would be arrested. The state police said the dispersal order came before the curfew because protesters were trying to take down the fencing and throwing rocks at police. The number of protesters dropped rapidly over the next hour, until only a few remained. Police also ordered all media to leave the scene.Gannon has said he believed Potter <a href=”https://apnews.com/article/shootings-police-minnesota-e6bb9c49b1bcdc244e3ec11d94137c82″>mistakenly grabbed her gun when she was going for her Taser.</a> But protesters and Wright’s family members say the shooting shows how the justice system is tilted against Black people, noting Wright was stopped for an expired car registration and ended up dead.

Brooklyn Center, a suburb just north of Minneapolis, has seen its racial demographics shift dramatically in recent years. In 2000, more than 70% of the city was white. Today, a majority of residents are Black, Asian or Hispanic.Elliott said he didn’t have information on the police department’s racial diversity at hand but that “we have very few people of color in our department.”After stopping Wright for the expired license plates, police tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant. The warrant was for his failure to appear in court on charges that he fled from officers and possessed a gun without a permit during an encounter with Minneapolis police in June.Body camera footage released Monday shows Wright struggling with police when Potter…

The officer who shot Mr Wright was named on Monday as Kim Potter, 48, who has worked for Brooklyn Center Police for 26 years.

Mr Wright was pulled over on Sunday for a traffic violation, but there was a struggle when he tried to get back into his car.

After drawing her gun, apparently by mistake, the officer said: “Holy shit, I just shot him.”

LIVE UPDATES: Minnesota police, rioters clash after Daunte Wright shooting; dozens arrested

Special Report w/ Bret Baier – Monday, April 12

On today’s episode of ‘Special Report’, Bret tracks protests in Minnesota after female police officer mistakes firearm for taser and fatally shoots a 20-year old black man. 

Minnesota authorities arrested about 40 people after rioters and police clashed for a second night in Brooklyn Center, Minn., authorities said during a news conference early Tuesday.

Hundreds gathered outside the Brooklyn Center Police Department Monday and defied curfew. They demanded justice for Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man fatally shot by police during a traffic stop. 

The crowd chanted “Daunte Wright!” Some shouted obscenities at officers.

Authorities fired tear gas, and flash-bang grenades into the crowd after warning them that they were in violation of curfew. Some rioters retaliated by throwing smoke canisters back toward law enforcement, while others launched fireworks at the police lines, according to reports.

“Move back!” the police chanted. “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” the crowd chanted back.

Authorities said officers were shelled “pretty significantly,” with objects thrown from the crowd. A few officers were hit by debris and suffered minor injuries during the unrest, police said.

Minnesota State Patrol Col. Matt Langer said law enforcement officials made attempts to talk with protest leaders about figuring how to peacefully disperse the crowds, but “unfortunately, those efforts weren’t successful … so … [we] stood and protected that building.”

The roughly 40 arrests were made at the Brooklyn Center Police Department protest, Langer said. He added that people were arrested for violations including breaching curfew and rioting.

Looters also broke into several businesses at a strip mall near the police station, including a Dollar Tree store, according to reports. 

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz imposed a curfew from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday for counties that included Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, and St. Paul, the state capital. 

Earlier, police put up a fence and concrete barricades around the building’s perimeter. It was surrounded by local police, as well as, Minnesota National Guard and Minnesota State Patrol officers, the Star Tribune reported

Amelia Huffman, the Minneapolis Police Department’s deputy chief for professional standards, said 13 people were also arrested in Minneapolis amid the demonstrations — four for burglaries, two were suspects in shots-fired incidents, six were for curfew violations, and one was on an outstanding warrant.

Huffman added that five businesses were burglarized in Minneapolis during the unrest.

Police shot and killed Wright during a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb on Sunday. The bodycam footage showed three police officers gathered near a stopped car that was pulled over an expired registration. Police attempted to arrest Wright for an outstanding warrant, leading to a struggle, followed by the fatal shooting.

Vice President Kamala Harris took to Twitter late Monday to comment on the shooting and said Wright’s family needs “justice and healing” as the investigation plays out.

“Prayers are not enough,” she tweeted. “Daunte Wright should still be with us. While an investigation is underway, our nation needs justice and healing, and Daunte’s family needs to know why their child is dead—they deserve answers.”

Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said the officer who shot and killed Wright had intended to fire a Taser, not the handgun.

The officer was identified as Kimberly A. Potter, whose career with the Brooklyn Center Police Department has spanned more than 25 years, the Star Tribune reported. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Monday night that Potter is on standard administrative leave.

Wright died of a gunshot wound to the chest, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office said in a statement.

What happened overnight?

The curfew went into force at 19:00 (midnight GMT) across four counties with a huge law enforcement deployment.

In a press briefing after midnight local time, Minnesota State Patrol colonel Matt Langer said officers had reached out to organisers to try to keep protests peaceful but “unfortunately… the organisers weren’t able to influence the desires of the crowd”.

Col Langer said officers had been “shelled pretty significantly with objects” including fireworks.Daunte Wright’s mother ‘He was my life’.

He said protesters had pushed against the fence of the Brooklyn Center police headquarters and a decision had been made to push back the crowd.

There were “sporadic” incidents of looting in the area and in other parts of Minneapolis and neighbouring St Paul.

In response to the unrest, US President Joe Biden said peaceful protest was “understandable” but added: “I want to make it clear again: there is absolutely no justification, none, for looting.”

Shortly before midnight, Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliot said he had spoken to Daunte Wright’s father and would “do everything to ensure justice is served”.

‘You took his life, for what?’

BBC’s Barbara Plett Usher reports from the scene

One sign at the protest captured the mood: “During the trial!!?” it read in bright orange letters. 

“It’s ridiculous,” said the young man carrying it. “They know they have a delicate relationship with the black community right now and they should look to be making amends, not this.”

City officials had said the shooting could not have happened at a worse time, with tensions high over the George Floyd case. 

Some protesters threw bottles and shot fireworks toward police lines. They vented their rage as officers in riot gear stood impassively. “You took his life, for what?” screamed a young woman. 

“He was a son, he was a father, he was a black man that deserved to live.”

“Do you know the difference between a gun and a Taser?” shouted someone else. “Hell yeah,” roared the crowd, scorning the police chief’s belief that the shooting was a tragic mistake. 

“There’s no room for accidents,” said one man. “The fact is that we lost another young black male to a police officer.’ 

What happened to Daunte Wright?

Police Chief Tim Gannon he believed the shooting of Mr Wright to be “an accidental discharge”.

He was stopped by police for having expired car registration plates and they then discovered an outstanding warrant out on him, so tried to arrest him, said the police chief.

During a news conference on Monday, he played a video from the body camera worn by the policewoman which shows Mr Wright trying to get back into his car as officers attempt to handcuff him on the side of the road.

An officer can then be heard saying “Taser, Taser, Taser” – normal police procedure before firing one of the stun guns. Mr Wright is seen to get into his car and drive away, while the same officer admits, using an expletive, to having shot him.

Fatally wounded, Mr Wright crashed a few streets away.

“It is my belief the officer meant to deploy their Taser but shot him with a single bullet,” Chief Gannon said, adding: “There’s nothing I can say to lessen the pain.”

Daunte Wright’s aunt, Naisha Wright, told CNN she did not believe the police account, saying officers knew the difference between a gun and a Taser.

She said: “I’ve owned an over 20,000 volt Taser. They don’t feel nothing like a gun.”

The officer has been placed on administrative leave – temporary leave with benefits and salary still paid.

Mayor Elliot has said she should be fired. He will make a decision on Tuesday about whether Chief Gannon will keep his job, the StarTribune reported.

How do police avoid mistaking a gun for a Taser?

Analysis by BBC Reality Check

Axon, the Taser manufacturer, says its weapons are designed to be distinguishable from handguns. 

A company statement reported by the local media said it had “implemented numerous features and training recommendations to reduce the possibility of these incidents occurring…This includes building Taser energy weapons to look and feel different than a firearm.”

Different Taser features include:

  • Often produced in bright colours
  • Weigh significantly less than police guns
  • Typically have different grips
  • Don’t have a safety mechanism like guns 

Almost all American police departments now issue their officers with Tasers, according to an estimate by Reuters news agency

Police officers are typically trained to keep guns in a holster on their dominant side to avoid confusing it with their Taser, kept on the belt on the other side of the body. 

“So if you’re right handed you carry your firearm on your right side and [you] carry your Taser on your left,” Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon told reporters. 

Mistaking a gun for a Taser is relatively rare, but has happened before. 

Comprehensive nationwide figures aren’t available. However, a law journal published in 2012 found nine examples of police officers accidentally using a handgun instead of a Taser between 2001 and 2009.

There have also been more recent instances of a suspect being shot instead of Tasered, such as in 2019 when a shoplifter was accidentally shot and seriously injured in St Louis, Missouri.

Why Minneapolis is tense

The trial of Derek Chauvin over the death of George Floyd has been under way in the city for two weeks now.

Mr Chauvin was filmed kneeling on Mr Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes during an arrest operation in Minneapolis last May. The footage of the incident sparked global protests against racism.

On Monday, Mr Chauvin’s lawyer Eric Nelson called for jury members to be asked about the Daunte Wright shooting to determine if what they had heard could affect their verdict: How long will Derek Chauvin trial last?

He repeated a call for the jury to be kept separate from the public, but Judge Peter Cahill said full sequestering would only start when closing arguments began.

Law enforcement officials have been bracing for possible unrest once the jury reaches a verdict.

(LONDON) JUST IN: NCA REPORT: Arrest of three people Thursday evening allegedly involved in ‘Cross-Channel-People-Smuggling-Operation’ & supply of the small boats #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.09: Three people have been arrested following an investigation into the alleged supply of small boats to cross-Channel people smugglers:

NCA Report: ‘Three arrested over alleged supply of boats to cross-Channel people smugglers’

NCA and police jackets

Yesterday evening (8 April) a 33-year-old woman from the Hammersmith area of west London was arrested by the National Crime Agency at a location in Glasgow’

She was taken to Carlisle police station where she was questioned by NCA investigators on suspicion of attempting to facilitate illegal immigration. A property in Hammersmith was also searched. This morning (9 April) she was released under investigation.

Her arrest followed the detention of two UK-based suspects on Wednesday 7 April by officers of the Dutch Royal Marechaussee (KMar) in The Hague, Netherlands.

The pair, a 33-year-old from Hammersmith, and the other a 28-year-old man of no fixed abode, remain in custody and now face potential prosecution by the Dutch authorities. A number of deflated boats were also seized.

The arrests are all linked to an NCA investigation into the sourcing of rigid hull inflatable boats (RHIBs) in the UK and Europe, which are then transported to the Netherlands for storage.

The boats are allegedly then supplied to organised crime groups involved in smuggling people across the English Channel from northern France and Belgium.

NCA Regional Head of Investigation Jacque Beer said: “Smuggling people across the Channel in small boats is extremely hazardous and can have tragic consequences: “ The organised crime groups behind these attempts don’t care about safety or preservation of life, they just see migrants as a commodity to profit from and exploit: “ In our view those who supply them with boats knowing what they are going to be used for are equally as culpable in these criminal enterprises: “ This operation is a demonstration of our determination to disrupt and dismantle people smugglers’ business models at every step, and we are grateful for the assistance of the Dutch authorities.”
