Large police operation in Växjö - more than 100 police officers participate
On Monday, a very comprehensive police operation was initiated in Växjö. The operation is called Operation Rimfrost and according to Smålandsposten, more than 100 police officers participate. The goal is to find weapons, explosives and drugs.
– This is a pre-planned effort and will not be implemented because of any special event. Rimfrost's focus is on serious violence and criminal environments, which we consider to be very important to act against, says Jonas Eek, local police area manager in Växjö.
The police will search public places but also conduct house searches based on intelligence information of known criminal persons. According to Smålandsposten, the police will mainly look at Araby and Dalbo.
– It must be hard to be a criminal in Växjö and Araby. I have said it before. During operation Rimfrost in Växjö, this will be extra obvious to the criminals, says Jonas Eek.
