A POLICE crackdown on repeat offenders is continuing.

Chichester Police launched Operation Suppress earlier this year to target suspects who commit the majority of crime in the area.

A 51-year-old man from Chichester has been arrested for 15 offences including fraud, production of cannabis, abstracting electricity, handling stolen goods, theft of keys, drink driving and other driving offences.

Another man, 46, from Tangmere has been arrested for six offences including a possession of cannabis, handling stolen goods and making a false statement to his insurance company.

They are on bail while inquiries continue.

Inspector Will Rolls from Chichester neighbourhood policing team said: "Historically, Chichester district has suffered crime from repeat offenders who reside either on or near to the district.”
