E-Cops - Your Weekly News 31-JAN-2012

We have had one crime report in Bar Hill recently;

On Sunday 22nd January, between 14:30 and 16:00 hours, three men described as Eastern Europeans have entered Tesco store and walked towards the computer equipment display, one of the men has cut the lock securing the laptop to the display shelf and one of the other men has removed the laptop from the shelf and placed the laptop up his jumper and made an attempt to walk out of the store. These men have realised that they were being watched on CCTV, then they have dumped the laptop in the store and left.

I have collected and viewed the CCTV which clearly shows the males removing the laptop from the display shelf. A number of clear images of suspects have been circulated for identification.

On public request, I have been making some enquiries regards foreign registered vehicles being used in Bar Hill. An Audi A6 that is normally parked in Appletrees has been in the UK for over a year and the keeper has been warned by myself and colleagues to register the vehicle with DVLA immediately or they could be liable for prosecution. Further enquiries are to be made with this vehicle owner.

The other vehicle parked in Pheasant Rise, Bar Hill, has only been in the UK for two months which is perfectly legal. Foreign vehicles are entitled to stay in this Country up to one year with their Country registration plate. After a year, they are required to register their vehicles on British number plates with DVLA, if they are wishing to stay in the UK any longer.

At the last Parish Council meeting some parking issues were raised for Pheasant Rise, Bar Hill. So far I have managed to speak to three residents regards the manner of their parking, they have agreed to park elsewhere in the area where obstruction is not caused to other drivers, I have issued one warning notice to one of the residents for parking inconsiderately.

I have carried out speed checks in Crafts Way, Bar Hill last week. Good news as no vehicles were seen travelling in excess of the speed limit.

Also I have carried out speed checks in Oakington Road and Scotland Road, Dry Drayton last week, as a result two vehicles were seen travelling in excess of the speed limit. Both drivers have been dealt with regarding their speed.

Just to remind you all of the upcoming panel meeting which is a great opportunity to have a say in our policing priorities over the coming few months.
