Good luck to the police and the Worcester News.
some might complain that this looks like a cheap stunt, but it's a good thing that the police are seen to be doing their job, to re-assure the public, and as a deterrent.
I'll be a bit nervous about anyone knocking at the door today, mind.
Note for readers: For (hopefully obvious) operational reasons we don't plan to reveal exactly where the police are during the course of Operation Citadel.
Softly, softly approach being tried as @wmerciapolice execute a burglary warrant. Officers inside the first city flat. #citadelwmp— @rvernallsWN 23 October 2012
