Four new arrests were made in the investigation into activities of a criminal youth gang in South West The Hague, Monday morning, March 10. Together with 11 other suspects, apprehended on January 14, they are held responsible for dozens of burglaries.Immediately after the arrest of the local suspects, aged 17, 18, 19, and 20, police engaged in discussions with their families to explain why the four were arrested.

Under supervision of a dedicated prosecutor, police are cracking down on the Beresteinlaan neighborhood since February last year, investigating about 70 criminal youth. By removing negative role models as much as possible, police are trying to reduce the nuisance caused by these youth.
