Crimes Relating To Bookmakers

Question

Using the Freedom of Information Act please may I find out the number of crimes at Bookmakers’ and Betting Offices over the last five years.

Specifically, can you tell me how many crimes have been reported to you over the last five complete calendar years (1 January 2010 – 31 December 2015) where the M.O. Scene Category is shown as "Betting Office"?

Please break this down by year, by allegation type (i.e. fraud, robbery, etc.) and by outcome (if that information is available. For example conviction).
