Seventy-one people have been arrested during a two-day police crackdown on repeat offenders in southwest Sydney.Operation Stoneridge, which was carried out on Thursday and Friday, targeted people responsible for break and enter and robbery offences.Over the two days, 71 people were arrested and 123 charges were laid, police say.One of the most significant arrests included a 36-year-old man who was charged with 27 counts of stealing and fraud offences across southwest Sydney between March 10, 2009 and August 6, 2009.He was released on bail to appear before Liverpool Local Court on October 15.
27 counts of stealing etc in a period lasting less than 16 weeks - and that's just what the cops have been able to pin on him. It's nearly three weeks until his court appearance - at his normal rate of offending, he'll commit 6 more offences before going before a judge.
I feel so much safer. Not.
