Britain’s biggest police force are targeting dozens of wanted suspects by driving around
The ‘targeted week of action’ by the Met Police will include an appeal to the public for any information regarding unsolved crimes in London.
Officers have put up 38 mugshots of wanted men and women on the sides of two police vans that will be driven around the capital all week.
Under ‘Operation Venice’, police are hunting suspected street robbers, burglars and others said to be linked to moped-enabled crimes.

Another, Enrico Martin, 18, is wanted for failing to appear in relation to a series of linked knifepoint robberies in 2017.
Chief Inspector Jim Corbett, from Operation Venice, said: ‘These offenders have callously robbed, stolen or burgled from communities, commuters and tourists within London, often using violence and weapons, for their own financial gain.
‘We are relentlessly pursuing violent offenders and bringing them to justice, but we need the help of the public as well. Somebody somewhere knows something about these criminals and I urge people to pass any information to us as soon as possible.

‘One phone call could potentially solve or even prevent a crime from happening. All information is treated confidentially and if you don’t want to speak to us, you can contact Crimestoppers who are totally independent of the police.
‘If you see someone or you know the current location of someone who is wanted, please dial 999. Do not put yourself at risk, or confront the individual. Find an appropriate place to make the phone call where you cannot be seen or heard.
‘If you are one of the individuals we wish to speak to, I would suggest handing yourself in to the nearest police station sooner rather than later. Knocking on our door is infinitely better than us knocking on yours!’
Anyone who has any information in regard to these wanted individuals is urged to contact police on 999 or local police by dialling 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or tweet @MetCC with any information.
