MORE than 10,000 CDs and DVDs have been seized by police in the last month following a string of covert operations across Welwyn Hatfield.
Two men were arrested and some 9,574 discs, together with 3,841 printed sleeves, were confiscated in August.
After questioning the men on suspicion of possession of criminal property, one man, a 37-year-old, was police bailed until November 2, while the other was released without charge.
And in the latest operation, which took place at a car boot sale in Birchwood on Sunday, cops impounded 486 DVDs and formally cautioned a man in his 20s for possession of criminal property.
