Dealers and burglars targeted by volunteer cops

DRUG dealers and burglars were just some of the crooks targeted by volunteer cops during a day of action.
Officers from Essex Police’s special constabulary bashed down the doors of homes in Grays, Colchester, Chelmsford, Rayleigh and Southend during a series of dawn raids.
They seized drugs and arrested three people during the crackdown, which was codenamed Operation Witchcraft and aimed to highlight the work of the volunteer officers.
During the day of action on Saturday special constables also backed up traffic cops as they carried out a series of stop checks - aiming to stop travelling crooks in their tracks - in Basildon and at Lakeside.
