Four men have been arrested and two caravans seized after police launched an operation to target some suspected rogue traders.
Dozens of officers were involved in the operation this morning (Wednesday 9 November), with warrants executed at a number of addresses in Little Billington.
Three people were arrested on suspicion of fraud and forgery, in connection to a series of doorstep fraud offences in Bedfordshire and across the wider region.
Officers also seized two stolen caravans, with another man arrested a man on suspicion of handling stolen goods in connection to one of these caravans.
Superintendent Graham Bates said: “Protecting people is what we do and preventing instances such as these from happening is our prerogative.
“Reporting that you are a victim of fraud and theft helps us protect the wider public and may even prevent it from occurring to others.
“We especially need to protect elderly people from falling prey to fraudsters which can cause much more of a devastating impact.
“People are urged to take precautions, look out for elderly neighbours and relatives – and please report anything to us so we can take action.”
There are a number of things you can do to help you prevent fraud and beat the scammers.
