E-Cops - Weekly Update 03-MAR-2012


We have had three reported crimes in the area since our last ecops report;

Between 10:20 hrs and 10:30 hrs on Tuesday 28th February 2012, an unknown offender has entered Tesco in Bar Hill and selected a number of computer games which have then been concealed in a rucksack. The offender has then left the store making no attempts to pay for the items. Security have approached the offender outside the store but unfortunately they made good their escape. Enquiries are ongoing to identify the offender.

Between 23:55 hrs on Tuesday 28th February 2012 and 10:30 hrs on Wednesday 29th February 2012, unknown offender(s) have damaged a wooden cellar door located at the rear of The Fox Public House.

At 00:50 hrs on Wednesday 29th February, unknown offender(s) have slashed the side curtain on a lorry which has been parked up on the A14 at Dry Drayton. The driver of the lorry has become aware of person(s) trying to break in and got out to investigate. Offender(s) have made off before managing to remove anything.

If you have any information that could assist us with any of the above three crimes, please contact us on 101.
