E-Cops - Your weekly E-cop 26-JUL-2011

Crime levels still remain low and well under control for Bar Hill and the surrounding villages.

This week I have carried out door to door police surgeries in Foxhollow, Bar Hill. I am happy to say that the consultation with the residents was positive with no issues raised. 

On Sunday, 17th July, whilst I was on patrol in a marked police vehicle, a member of the public alerted me to a vehicle that had come off the road in Station Road, Longstanton. I spoke to the driver and realised that he may had been driving whilst under the influence of alcohol. I informed a police officer colleague who attended the scene and breathalised the driver, the driver was found to be above the legally prescribed limit and was arrested for a drink driving offence. The driver had apparently been to a birthday party and felt that was OK for him to drive home whilst he was under influence of alcohol. His decisions put at risk not only his safety, but also that of other road users. Fortunately for him even though he came of the road and ended up in a ditch he got away with relatively minor injuries. Family members were aware of the circumstances, but were unable to persuade him not to drive. As a consequence the driver will face a driving ban and a heavy fine. 

I have been dealing with a neighbourhood dispute at The Brambles, Bar Hill. We have had a few incident reports of rowdy nuisance between two neighbours in the location. I have been dealing with most of these incidents and unfortunately this matter is still not resolved. Due to one of the parties remaining unhappy with the progress PS Rogerson will now investigate the matter further.

We have had one report of burglary in the Industrial Estate at Bar Hill. Three suspects have gained access into one of the units and have stolen several items. Police have fully investigated this, however due to lack of evidence the crime remains undetected.

Just to remind you the Bar Hill SKATE competition is on Saturday, 30TH July at 1pm. Please do pass the message on to anyone that may be interested to come along.
