“Operation Raptor” sees over 100 arrests and 122 weapons recovered in Lincolnshire

More than 100 arrests have now been made as part of Operation Raptor, an ongoing campaign to tackle weapons offences.

Lincolnshire Police have also recovered 122 weapons, with 77 seized and a further 45 handed in at our four main police stations, as part of a weapons surrender.

Eight warrants have so far been executed, officers have tested for weapons at bars and nightclubs in the west of the county, and education work has taken place in a number of schools.

Superintendent Lee Pache said: “Operation Raptor has made a real impact so far, and the numbers of arrests and weapons seized demonstrate that this is a top priority for us.

”Following on from this excellent start, there is more work to do – and we have a long-term commitment to ensure that offenders are brought to justice and weapons do not fall into the wrong hands.

“Lincolnshire is a safe place to live and we want it to remain that way, so I’d encourage anyone who has information about these offences to contact us so that we can investigate and continue to protect the public.”
