Thames Valley Police has arrested three men following an operation to disrupt residential burglary and drug supply within Windsor and Maidenhead.

On 11 February, a 31-year-old man from Slough was arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply.

On 12 February, a 33-year-old man from Maidenhead was arrested on suspicion of possession of a bladed article.

All three men have been released under investigation.

During the week-long activity, which ran from 11 to 15 February, officers from the Windsor and Maidenhead Problem Solving team and the Roads Policing Unit worked in partnership with Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead council to target offenders.

The operation also resulted in four cars being seized along with a samurai sword and quantity of cash.

Sergeant Ryan Powell, from the Windsor and Maidenhead Problem Solving team, said: “We are working closely with our partners to deter those wanting to cause threat or harm within our communities.

“We have a number of resources available to disrupt this type of criminality including CCTV, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and members of the community who provide our additional eyes and ears.

“Anyone with information about criminality in their neighbourhood can report it using the Thames Valley Police website.
