Operation Rendition Nottinghamshire Police Statements

http://www.nottinghamshire.police.uk

The biggest ever search undertaken by Nottinghamshire Police began in the early hours of today (Friday, 13 August).

A total of 450 officers, some of them armed, are searching areas in the north of the county for two murder suspects.

The first is Robert Boyer, 42, who is wanted for questioning in connection with the murder of Keith Frogson. Mr Frogson, 62, died after he was attacked in the street outside his home in Annesley Woodhouse on Monday, 19 July.

Officers are also looking for Terence Rodgers, 55, who is wanted for questioning over the death of his daughter Chanel Taylor. She was found with gunshot wounds to the head at her home in Huthwaite on Friday, 30 July. Today’s operation comes after intelligence identified specific areas to be searched for the suspects.

Superintendent Stuart Wright said: “Our aim is to locate and trace the suspects with the minimum use of force and arrest and detain them for questioning in connection with the two murders.

Some of our officers will be armed and the safety of the public, officers and the suspects is paramount.”

Supt Wright said the operation would require some roads to be closed at various times. There will also be areas cordoned off by police where the public will be prevented from going. He added: “This is the largest ever search operation conducted by Nottinghamshire Police and I would ask the public for their support and appeal for them to be patient with us.”

Operation Rendition – Rodgers arrested

At just after 1730hrs yesterday evening (Monday 16th August 2004), Nottinghamshire Police arrested 55 year old Terence Rodgers, the man wanted for questioning in connection with the murder of Chanel Taylor.During a major search operation in the defined area, he was arrested by armed police officers and has been taken to an undisclosed police station in the county where he will be examined by a police surgeon.

This brings Operation Rendition, which has been running since the early hours of Friday 13th August, to a successful conclusion. Nottinghamshire Police would like to thank members of public and the media for their support, while special thanks go to the police officers and police staff of this force and others, who have worked tirelessly throughout theoperation.

Without their commitment and dedication, this operation and in particular the achievement of its objectives would not have been possible
