More than 40 officers from Hampshire, Surrey and Thames Valley have taken part in a cross-border operation to tackle rural crime.

The activity last night was part of the force's Operation Rebate to disrupt criminals coming into the north Hampshire.

More than 20 vehicles were stopped, with one seized, three people were also arrested for driving offences.

Hampshire saw officers from Tadley and Yateley's Neighbourhood teams taking part, as well as those from Country Watch, the Dog Unit and the Roads Policing Unit.

Inspector Olga Venner, from Hampshire Constabulary, said:

“Last night saw no offences reported in relation to Operation Rebate, so we are pleased that our action is making a difference.

“Operations like this are important to show criminals that rural areas in Hampshire are not a soft target.

“We know rural crims has a significant impact on those targeted and we are dedicated to do whatever we can to bring those responsible to justice.

“Together with our colleagues from neighbouring police forces, we will continue to work hard to ensure our communities are safer for all.”
