According to the Wakefield Express website, thieves operating in Wakefield have been warned they will be caught as police launch a new shoplifting drive.

The Wakefield Central Neighbourhood Policing Team is taking a zero-tolerance approach to shop thefts in the city centre, warning offenders, ‘lift it – and we’ll lift you’.

Officers are encouraging businesses to report shoplifting and have said they will do all they can to deter store thieves.

A police spokeswoman said, “Shoplifting is a blight on business and far from a victimless crime and I want premises to know that we will not turn a blind eye to this sort of offence. We are monitoring known offenders.”
