Overkill? The Update

A couple of days ago I made the Overkill post about a load of police at a pub next to my mother in laws. As promised I have found out why they were there, it seems that they had a tip off that two people wanted on an assault charge earlier in the week were in the pub. When the police went into the pub to arrest the pair they uncovered a bag of amphetamines. In all nine people were arrested including the two on the assault charge.

So there you have it, nine arrests about the same amount of police cars and vans, around 20+ police men and a few police dogs. Still the sight of all those poice men in the car park turned my three boys into little angels for the 20 minutes we were at the in laws.


  1. Thanks for the update. Was wondering what was going on up there, especially when the copper chopper started circling around here.

    I always thought that was a "nice" pub, clearly not.

  2. Oh, and I forgot to mention, that "Overkill" was the official name for the original theme tune of "The Bill".... now, where did I leave that coat?

    Woow, How god am I? I didnt even know that. :D

  3. Oh good, my curiosity was going insane waiting! 9 arrests in one blow, sounds like a new Disney movie in the making.

    Disney? Nah, This town is more like a Quentin Tarantino movie :)
