"Officers from across force have worked together on this operation in order to gather information, obtain warrants and then carry out this enforcement activity.

Investigations following these arrests will remain ongoing. This has involved a lot of commitment and dedication from all involved and my thanks go to them as well as to members of the community for working with us while the enforcement has been carried out".

Inspector Rich Jackson, North West Leicestershire NPA Commander.

Over a 4 day period the team executed Operation Hatch which consisted of;

• 22 warrants • 1 cannabis factory & £60,000 worth of cannabis recovered • 16 Arrests • Excellent community and partner feedback • Numerous closure order applications being progressed

Arrests included: • 41-year-old woman, of Ashby, was arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation. She has since been charged with the offence. • 23-year-old man and an 18-year-old man, of Leicester, were arrested in connection with a non-stop collision in Belvoir Road in Coalville on Monday 13 April. Leicestershire Police had issued previous appeals in relation to the investigation. Both men have since been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent. This is addition to charges for other separate offences including drugs offences.

Several million cases of fraud and of computer misuse are reported to the police every year. It's staggering, but even more staggering is that so many of those crimes could have been prevented by making a few small changes in online behaviour.

To avoid becoming a victim of online crime you don't need to be a computer expert. Developing a few good online habits drastically reduces your chances of becoming a victim of cyber-crime, makes you less vulnerable and lets you use the web safely.

Online fraud, also known as cyber-crime, covers all crimes that:

  • take place online
  • are committed using computers, or
  • are assisted by online technology

To reduce your chances of becoming a victim:

  • use a strong password or passphrase, which is at least 12 characters long and contains a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols
  • never give personal or sensitive details out online or over email
  • make sure all devices have up-to-date anti-virus software and a firewall installed
  • keep software and apps regularly updated
  • only download from legal, trusted websites
  • only open emails and attachments from known and trusted sources
  • look for the padlock icon in the address bar when paying for goods or services online – it means the website is trusted and secure
  • check the address starts with https:// whenever you're asked to enter sensitive information online
  • avoid using public WiFi hotspots that are not secure or ask you for personal information to access it
  • regularly back up your data
  • control your social media accounts – regularly check your privacy settings and how your data is being used and shared
  • be cautious of internet chats and online dating – there's no guarantee you're speaking to who you think
  • be extremely cautious if you're asked for money


If you are currently being subjected to a live and ongoing cyber-attack then please contact us on 101.

If you suspect you've been scammed, defrauded or experienced cyber-crime, the Action Fraud team can also provide the help, support and advice you need.

Call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 (textphone 0300 123 2050).
