Helicopter and dog support were deployed.
From Fylde Police –
If you live in Ansdell or the surrounding areas, you may have heard the police helicopter 🚁 last night. Here’s a message from Divisional Commander Chief Supt Karen Edwards to explain why 👇
“I apologise if the helicopter kept you awake last night but I want to give you an update on the incidents that were taking place.
“Following community feedback across the Lytham St Annes area, we carried out some additional proactive work and identified that a number of vehicles had been tampered with in Ansdell, with one broken into. We deployed air support and dog units, resulting in the arrests of four teenagers from Blackpool who are currently in police custody.
“I promised residents that my officers would take more proactive action in relation to community concerns. This is a great example of this approach and this is just the beginning.”
The boys – aged 13, 13, 16 and 16 – were all arrested on suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle. The remain in police custody where they are being questioned by detectives.
