Inspector Les Yeo
Integrated Riot Investigation Team
We reached a milestone for the Team today, with recommended charges against the 100th rioter. It’s not only 100, it’s our first 100.
As I have said all along, there’s more to come. Investigators are hard at work preparing for the next charges.
Round 3 was delivered to Crown this morning with 63 more charges against 20 suspected rioters. A total of 278 criminal charges have now been recommended against 100 rioters.
My message to rioters is simple: If you think you got away with what you did on June 15th you’re mistaken. The victims haven’t forgotten and neither have we.
Soon we will be releasing hundreds of more photos of rioters onto our website.
