Criminals arrested after believing free beer offer

275x250.jpg Police in Derbyshire have arrested 19 suspected criminals after luring them to meetings with offers of free beer.

Officers contacted dozens of suspects who'd evaded arrest and posing as a marketing company said they's won a free crate of beer.

They then arranged where the crooks -- who included those suspected of committing burglary and robbery to a serious sexual assault -- could go to collect their free beer.

However, when the unsuspecting criminals arrived, they were confronted by Derbyshire police and promptly arrested.

They never got their free crate of beer. Shame!
Chief Inspector Graham McLaughlin, who is leading the operation, said: "These suspects are people who have managed to evade arrest for some time so we have used different tactics to find them.  

"It has been very cost effective as it can take a lot of time and money to track people down.

"We use a variety of methods to arrest those suspected of committing criminal offences and we will continue to use new tactics when necessary."
