Detective Inspector Rich Osgerby from Humberside Police’s Proactive Team said: “Results like this just illustrate the variety of work my officers do on a daily basis and stands testament to their hard work and dedication in finding individuals involved in crime.
“Whether that be carrying out pre-planned warrants, knocking through doors, observing suspicious activity on the streets, to spotting known and wanted people.
“We act on intelligence as well as keeping our eyes peeled while out and about.
“You might not see us or even know we are there as we work in plain clothes, but ten arrests in one day which have already led to three charges sends out a very strong message to potential criminals to always keep looking over their shoulders.
“You just don’t know who is watching.”
