Appeal - 20th December 2018
Please see the below photographs in relation to the Limehouse Basin series of robberies. These robberies have occurred around Narrow Street and Limehouse Basin area, mentioned a few weeks ago. Sadly even though the frequency of offences have died down, they have not stopped. Unfortunately there have been a couple more yesterday, and we are continuing our visible and covert patrols around the area.
The photographs below are of the suspects we believe are responsible and so need to identify.
Police have arrested four suspects already in relation to these offences, and the investigation is still ongoing. But public assistance is still needed in helping identify those not yet arrested.
The photos below have a six digit reference number for each person to identify.
The investigation is now named Operation Naga.
If you have any information or can identify those from the photographs, please contact the CID incident room on 0207 275 4550, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or police on the non-emergency number of 101.
