Police raided 47 properties across Leicester and Leicestershire in a crackdown on wanted criminals.

The force said it arrested seven people in Operation Cabriolet, targeting “outstanding offenders wanted for live crime investigations”

Of those arrested, five were charged with a range of offences including possession of an offensive weapon and sexual assault.

One person was released with no further action and another was released pending further inquiries.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul McKinder, who led the operational activity, said: “Our latest phase of Operation Cabriolet has proven to be successful, with seven people arrested. As always, we look to target those people who are causing the most harm to our communities.”

DCI McKinder added: “Our day of action has been a great success and now we will do all we can to bring those responsible to justice.”
