On Thursday 19/01/2006, as a result of a joint initiative officers from Operation GRAFTON working together with Thames Valley Police engaged in an operation against seven individuals operating in the vicinity of Heathrow Airport. Those concerned travelled to a local farm premises where they were seen to load a 7.5-ton lorry with property taken from an out building. Police entered the premises and arrested five individuals who were in the process of loading a consignment of Gillette products into the lorry. A further search of the farm resulted in the recovery of a quantity of class C drugs and a substantial amount of electrical goods (IPODs, audio equipment and accessories). Many of the items recovered had airfreight markings. A further two males were arrested nearby on suspicion of complicity in a conspiracy to steal or dishonestly handle the recovered property.
