Member reports
Here's a phone scam experience from one of our members:

Fortunately, our member knew better than to press 1!
 
Another member received an email with a Penalty Charge notice from the HM Courts & Tribunal Service in respect of the use of a vehicle on a road in an area in which a charge applies without payment of the charge at the date and location.

County Lines week of action leads to 16 arrests across Avon and Somerset
‘County Lines’ is a term used to describe how gangs in large cities export drugs to smaller areas of the country. The criminals will exploit young people or vulnerable residents and may even take over their home to use as a base, known as ‘cuckooing’.
Please click HERE to read about the results of the national week of action against County Lines drug dealing and the exploitation of vulnerable people.
 
Last week’s operation saw 16 people arrested for a range of offences including drugs supply, possession of weapons and theft. Officers seized weapons including knives, a machete, a hammer and an axe, a large amount of suspected class A drugs, and approximately £10,000 in cash, as well as 14 mobile phones, and a vehicle.
