(LONDON) MET REPORT: Officers investigating the exploitation of young and vulnerable individuals into county lines activity have carried out a series of early morning warrants on Tuesday, 20 April and arrested five people #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.21: All those arrested have been taken to police stations in London and Hampshire. The Metropolitan Police Service lead the investigation:

The operation involved more than 150 officers from the Metropolitan Police Service, Hampshire Constabulary and Thames Valley Police.

MET Proactive Unit Officers: Arrests have been made as police target county lines networks: ‘A total of eight addresses were targeted simultaneously across London, Hampshire and Berkshire. Three men and two women, aged between 20 and 40 years old, have been arrested on suspicion of offences including conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and modern slavery’

[Officers on this morning’s raids]

Searches of the addresses continue but officers have so far found a machete, Class B drugs and a rapier sword.

The investigation was launched in January this year after officers identified a ring of people involved in widespread drug supply across the southeast of England through county lines.

The early stages of the investigation led officers to believe young children and extremely vulnerable adults were being used to deal drugs along the county lines. They secured evidence to suggest these individuals were being held against their will in order to clear debts owed to the group.

The investigating team worked tirelessly to identify suspects through CCTV, ANPR and extensive cell phone analysis. The operation has so far resulted in four young children and vulnerable people being rescued. They are currently being looked after by specialist officers.

Sergeant Tom Freeman from the Met’s Proactive Gangs Unit, which leads the investigation, said: “This morning’s activity is a culmination of months of hard work by officers across three different police forces. The operation focused on rescuing children and vulnerable people who had no option to do as they were told through fear of violence from those controlling them: “ The evidence we’ve gathered leads us to believe they were being held against their will until they paid off debts they did not create in the first place. Those involved in this activity entirely manipulated the vulnerabilities of these individuals for their own financial gain – a common trait of county lines lineholders: “ We know county lines activity is closely linked to violence we see on the streets of London and other parts of the United Kingdom. Not only have we rescued vulnerable people from violence and exploitation, but by disrupting this drug supply line we’ve destroyed the business model of this group and hopefully prevented violent incidents occurring in the future.”

Inspector Richard Lane from Hampshire Constabulary, which supported the operation, said: “County lines and its associated violence can cause misery in our communities, and it is right that we put significant effort into dismantling these networks and safeguarding vulnerable people who have been exploited in this trade: “ We will continue to work with our partners to identify those responsible and target these drug dealing networks in north Hampshire and across the force area.”

Detective Inspector John Wordsworth, from Thames Valley Police, which aided the operation, said: “County lines drugs has a significant impact on our communities and often those who profit from drugs are exploiting children and vulnerable adults in order to do so: “ We are committed to tackling county lines drugs and this operation should be a reminder that police forces will work together across borders in order to stop this pernicious activity: “ We will also continue to work in partnership to protect those who are exploited by county lines drugs gangs: “ The public also have an important role to play in providing information that can assist us in dismantling county lines drugs lines and also safeguard vulnerable individuals.”

+++

The below were arrested following the warrants:

[A] a 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and Class B drugs and on suspicion of money laundering.

[B] a 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs and on suspicion of securing services from children and vulnerable persons under the Modern Slavery Act 2002.

[C] a 38-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs and on suspicion of securing services from children and vulnerable persons under the Modern Slavery Act 2002.

[D] a 37-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs and on suspicion of securing services from children and vulnerable persons under the Modern Slavery Act 2002.

[E] a 20-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs and on suspicion of securing services from children and vulnerable persons under the Modern Slavery Act 2002.

(LONDON) MET REPORT: Fast Time Operation: Two males, aged 17 and 20 years old, have been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm and robbery after warrants were carried out on addresses on Wed.07: April: 2021: #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.09: At 22:00hrs on Friday, 2 April, two men on a stolen moped had an altercation with a third man on Retreat Place, E9. The incident ended with one of the two men on the moped producing a handgun appearing to try and shoot the man prior to making off:

MET Update: ‘Moped-enabled gun crime suspects arrested who were part of a fast-timed intelligence operation following a number of attempted shootings over the weekend.

[Stock image]

On Sunday, 4 April at 01:30hrs, on Digby Road, E9 the same moped, also with two riders, stopped by the passenger side of a car which had two members of the public in. The driver of the moped approached the passenger window and gestured the occupants to wind it down. It was at this point that the moped passenger pulled out a shotgun. Fortunately the vehicle managed to get away and there were no injuries.

The third incident is a robbery of a moped, which took place on Monday, 5 April at Warner Place, E2. Following immediate enquiries, this moped was located by police, as well as another moped suspected to be involved in the incidents earlier in the weekend. Following searches, police also found a zombie knife, a handgun, ammunition and a shotgun in the same area.

Warrants were carried out overnight (this morning) on an address on Stephan’s Close, E8 and Fleece Walk, N7. The two men were arrested and evidence seized.

Detective Superintendent Mike Hamer, who led the investigation, said: “Our number one priority is to protect our community from harm. These two men are incredibly dangerous individuals who are now off the streets of London. Their brazen attitude to carrying firearms in London and threatening members of the public in order to carry out their crimes is staggering. But for the timely and quality interventions carried out by my officers, we could very easily have been looking at a homicide investigation: “ Officers have worked round the clock over this holiday period and have done an incredible job and in quick time. Gun crime will not be tolerated in the Capital and we will continue to do whatever we can to stop those who carry out these violent and unnecessary crimes.”

(LONDON) Woolwich Crown Court Report: A man has been jailed for posting several messages on social media encouraging people to commit acts of terrorism in Bangladesh, following an investigation by the Metropolitan’s Counter Terrorism Command #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.25: Munna Hamza, 50, was sentenced to a total of three years’ imprisonment on Friday after being convicted of three counts of encouraging terrorism contrary to the Terrorism Act 2006 at Woolwich Crown Court. He will have to spend an additional year on licence when he is released:

UK: ‘British man’ jailed for encouraging acts of jihad terror in Bangladesh and has been jailed on Friday following an investigation by the Metropolitan’s Counter Terrorism Command, according to the Asian Express.

“British man jailed for encouraging acts of terrorism in Bangladesh,” Dhaka Tribune, March 23, 2021:

Hamza was arrested by the Counter Terrorism Command after his social media messages encouraging acts of terrorism against Bangladesh government were reported to police in 2018. The officers seized his computer, phones and memory sticks for forensic examination.

Following a thorough investigation, counter terrorism officers identified five posts of concern. In his posts, Hamza urged people to commit serious acts of violence against the Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her government.

The Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit later assessed the posts and found they were likely to be in breach of UK terrorism legislation.

He was charged in 2019 with four counts of encouraging terrorism.

According to Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, he was convicted for three posts he made between 1 September 2015 and 31 December 2015, one on 3 May 2018 and one on 16 May 2018. He was found not guilty of one other count of encouraging terrorism contrary to section 1(2) of the Terrorism Act 2006, which related to a post he made on 24 June 2018.

Commander Richard Smith, the head of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command praised the member of the public for reporting Hamza’s social media posts to the police….

(LONDON) TRBUTE: Four years on from the Westminster Bridge terrorist attack, the Commissioner and the Speakers of both Houses of Parliament attended a memorial service to pay tribute to PC Keith Palmer #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Today (Monday, 22 March) the wreath-laying and a socially distanced service of remembrance was conducted by The Reverend Prebendary Jonathan Osborne, the Met’s Senior Chaplain and The Reverend Tricia Hillas, the Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons.

Memorial service held for PC Keith Palmer four years after Westminster Bridge terror attack: ‘Commissioner Cressida Dick attended the memorial service at 12.00hrs in the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft and gave a reading from the Bible’s Revelation 21: 1-7 on behalf of the Met before placing a wreath at a plaque laid in PC Palmer’s memory at New Palace Yard’

Wreaths were also laid by PC Brian Pease and PC Lindsay McCree, on behalf of PC Palmer’s family and colleagues, as well as by The Speaker, Sir Lindsay Hoyle and the Lord Speaker, Lord Fowler’, representing the House of Commons and the House of Lords.

PC Keith Palmer was a husband and father who had joined the force because he wanted to make a difference to people.

He was a much-respected member of the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection (PaDP) and prior to joining PaDP, he had been in the Territorial Support Group based in Catford. Friends and colleagues remember fondly Keith’s passion for Charlton Athletic football club, which honoured him after his death by replacing his regular seat at The Valley Stadium with a white chair bearing his warrant number.

Though unarmed, PC Palmer had stopped a knife-wielding terrorist from entering the Palace of Westminster and subsequently received the George Medal for his actions.

Those in attendance at the memorial today gave thanks for Keith’s courage, fortitude and dedication to duty and remembered him for his warmth, gentleness, passion, and compassion.

Commissioner Cressida Dick, said: “Keith was a brave and dedicated police officer and four years ago today, he made the ultimate sacrifice by acting with complete selflessness to protect others: ‘We should never forget the courage and heroism this outstanding officer displayed during those terrible events: “ Today my thoughts are with Keith’s family, his friends and his colleagues who all loved him so very much. I am also thinking of the other victims who lost their lives or were injured on that tragic day.”

The service was delivered in line with current Covid guidance provided by the Government, which meant that the memorial service was a much smaller event than it would have been in normal circumstances.

(LONDON) MET Statement Report: Thirty six arrests were made by officers policing the protest gatherings in and around central London on (Saturday, 20 March) #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.21: While the large majority of people in attendance caused no trouble, officers did encounter pockets of disorder with crowds throwing bottles and other missiles and a number of officers were assaulted:

Statement following demonstration in central London: ‘A significant number of officers from across the Met were part of the policing operation, with many re-directed from frontline duties in local communities’

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Laurence Taylor, who led today’s policing operation, said: “This was another challenging day for our officers and I would like to thank them for their professionalism: “ Throughout the day, officers sought first to engage with people who had gathered to explain that their actions were unlawful under the COVID-19 regulations, and encouraged them to go home to help protect themselves and others during this public health crisis: “ Where this approach did not work and officers were met with hostility, police enforced the regulations and made arrests.

DAC Taylor added: “We once again saw police come under fire from missiles thrown by people in crowds, and several were injured as a result of targeted assaults. It is totally unacceptable and saddening that officers enforcing regulations that are there to protect us all were the victims of violent attacks. I wish them a speedy recovery: “ Many of those on duty in central London today should have been in their local communities dealing with violent crime and other local issues, but they played a role in reducing the risk of COVID-19 spreading by dispersing crowds.”
