A number of arrests have been made after an undercover police operation helped capture shoplifting gangs targeting a Sudbury supermarket - reports the Suffolk Free Press on May 25.

Plain clothed police worked with security staff and the store’s CCTV system to look out for potential suspects and arrest thieves attempting to steal hundreds of pounds worth of stock from the store.

Sergeant Kevin Horton, from Sudbury Police, told the Suffolk Free Press that it was likely a number of those arrested were linked to other crimes in the area and they had been attempting to get away with hauls of expensive items, such as alcohol.

“The help a CCTV security system can provide in tracking and catching criminals is invaluable – especially when it comes to supporting a police investigation. After criminal activity takes place, recorded images can easily be downloaded and made available to police.
