Latest police rail operation at Lewisham sees two arrests

The British Transport Police and Southeastern held another operation tonight at Lewisham station.

Knife arches were again installed. They report two arrests: one for theft and being wanted on warrant, the other for possession of drugs and criminal property.

This is the latest in a string of similar operation targeting stations such as Woolwich Arsenal and Abbey Wood.

    Either the word is spreading or scum are simply ditching blades as soon as they see the buildup on the platform (always sit up front so you can see everything as the train pulls in). Either way it’s a good beginning, same for the drugs. How they got the one wanted on warrant: that’s given me pause. Facial recognition or good old-fashioned police instincts? I’m concerned that the mandate will spread to outstanding tolls on the DartPass or civil rather than criminal matters Time will tell,, though still a good result particularly compared to the earliest.
