Car seized during crackdown on boy racers
POLICE are cracking down on boy racers causing problems in the Bodmin area with an operation last weekend that targeted offenders.
Police say they had received a large number of complaints about the young drivers from members of the public recently.
During the weekend a number of vehicles were stopped and drivers spoken to with officers checking the legality of the vehicles and giving advice on driving manner or modifications to the vehicles.
Police Community Support Officer (PCSO), Andrea Crocker, said the operation also resulted in one vehicle, a BMW, being seized from the driver after he failed to heed a previous warning regarding his driving.

"The driver has been the subject of a number of complaints to the police from members of the public who have witnessed his poor standard of driving on previous occasions,'' she said.
"Bodmin police hope this sends a clear message to boy racers of the town that antisocial driving will not be tolerated and those that participate will have their vehicles seized with the potential for the vehicles to be crushed.
"The operation was a success and Bodmin police will continue to monitor the situation with the potential for further operations on an ad-hoc basis in the future."
