Locals welcome clamp down on driving offences in East Brighton

08 April 2013

Local neighbourhood police officers along with traffic officers had a successful day of action known as Op Casper on Wednesday 3 April targeting all manner of driving offences in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean.
 
PC Nick Simmons from Brighton Neighbourhood Police Team said: "The day of action raised a great deal of positive interest from many residents and led to two arrests.
 
"Sixteen PCSOs patrolled the area looking for abandoned and untaxed vehicles whilst PCs assisted road traffic officers in stopping vehicles that had no insurance or had a marker on them for other offences. Like for example, when we stopped a car for not being insured but then further checks led to the 21-year-old driver being arrested on suspicion of money laundering and possession of cannabis. He has been bailed until 4 July pending further enquiries.
 
"I would appeal to anyone to contact local officers if they have any concerns about driving offences in their area. You can also report anti-social driving via the Op Crackdown on the Sussex Police website."
 
Op Casper results:
 
Four cars seized under Section 165 - displaying no insurance.

Fifty two cars have been reported to the DVLA for not displaying valid tax discs.
 
Two untaxed cars were clamped for removal as they had not been taxed for a considerable amount of time.
 
Twenty three Fixed Penalty Notices were issued.


Two drivers were given warnings for anti-social driving and next time their cars will be seized if caught continuing to drive in the same manner. 
 
Two people arrested: A 21-year-old local man arrested on suspicion of money laundering and possession of class B drugs and a 31-year-old man arrested on suspicion of theft from various shops in Brighton who has now been charged. He is Mark John Humberstone, a roofer from Fitzherbert Drive, Brighton.
