E-Cops - Your Weekly Update 13-SEP-2011

Another very busy week for me, I have spent most of the time in Bar Hill this week dealing with crime enquiries relating to two vehicles being broken into over the bank holiday period.

The two vehicles broken into were parked unattended in Menzies Hotel car park, Bar Hill. During the hours of darkness unknown offenders have managed to gain entry and have stolen unknown items. I have thoroughly investigated this crimes, unfortunately due to insufficient evidence the crimes remain undetected.

I also have spent a considerable amount of time dealing with a number of incidents relating to bilkings from Bar Hill Tesco Petrol Station, as a result I have so far gathered evidence through CCTV, and am still in process of identifying offenders responsible for those bilkings.

As part of my monthly plan, I managed to carry out some speed checks on Wednesday, 31st August, in Crafts Way, Bar Hill. As a result, one motorist was seen speeding in excess of the speed limit. This motorist was spoken to regarding their speed through the village, and will also be sent a warning letter.

On Wednesday, 31 August, PCSO Baugh and I carried out door to door police surgeries in Hanover Close, Bar Hill. We consulted with all the local residents that live in the area, and we are pleased to announce that we only had positive feed back from this area..

On Sunday, 28th August, there was a report of suspicious activity at the Industrial Estate, Dry Drayton. Two men were seen in the Industrial Estate in a vehicle and as a result of police investigation there were no offences revealed.

Please be aware that churches nearby in Willingham and Over have recently been targeted for lead thefts which have been removed from the roof during the hours of darkness. May I ask that you all be extra vigilant over the coming months and please report any suspicious activity near your local churches. If residents decide to walk their dogs we are encouraging them pay passing attention to their local churches helping to give a presence. Please remember that churches are very vulnerable to this type of offence and any presence whether its the police or local residents will be a great deterrent to stop future crime. The police will also be increasing patrols in these areas.

I hope you find the information of some use, if we can assist you further please get in touch with us either via e-mail or by phone, and we will do our best to help.

Kind Regards
