Fri, 26 Nov 2021

17 people were arrested on the Isle of Man this week as part of a policing operation.

Operation Redcap focused on criminal activities of members of organised crime groups responsible for the importation, storage and distribution of illegal drugs on Island, as well as the removal of criminal property. 

Officers made seventeen arrests for a combination of Possession with intent to supply Class A and B Drugs; Money Laundering; Firearms Offences, Possession of Offensive Weapons and the offence of Removal of Criminal Property.

Superintendent Stephen Maddocks stated: "This week of action for Operation Redcap falls out of the successful work we all did during Operation Strongbox. We have continued to work collaboratively with our partner agencies in tackling organised crime, such as drugs, money laundering, county lines and firearms offences. In doing this we are seeking to protect the vulnerable in our community and maintaining the security of our borders and keeping our island as safe as we can. 

"Finally I want to remind criminals both on and off the island seeking to exploit the Isle of Man that we will continue working with our partners to disrupt your activities, gather the evidence against you and then bring you to justice."
