Bottesford NHW Alert: Shed Break in / Theft From Redmile Church

Shed Break In

We have received a report of a shed break in at a property in the Grantham Rd area of the village overnight Saturday. Bolt croppers were used to disable the padlock and a number of items including bicycles and tools stolen. It is likely that a vehicle was used to remove the stolen goods. This is the second break-in of this kind in the last couple of weeks so it is clear that there is someone in, or operating in, the area looking for easy pickings. The use of bolt croppers indicates a degree of planning and intent by the perpetrator/s. Please be vigilant and where possible take extra precautions at this time of increased risk. Shed alarms are not expensive and are quite easy to fit. If possible remove more valuable items to a safer location.

 

Theft From Redmile Church

Sometime between last Wed and today someone entered Redmile Church and stole money from the collection pot and from a small safe on the wall. Please be vigilant around our local churches and report any suspicious activity/persons.

BottesfordNHW Alert: Male Behaving Suspiciously in Plungar

Whilst the following alert has not been confirmed as criminal in nature it reminds us of the importance of maintaining  alertness and awareness.

 

On Tuesday 7 February 2017 at approximately 12 noon, a person called at a property in Church Lane, Plungar enquiring if the motor vehicle parked in the road outside the property was for sale. He also was asking people outside the property the same question. After being told it was not he sat in his vehicle outside the property in question for a few minutes before departing.

 

This behaviour can be a ploy used by criminals to ’suss’ out the property and those surrounding it to se if there is anything of value around, particularly in the gardens.

 

The person in question was; a white male, approximately 5’11” in height, large build with a beer belly, brown short curly hair, wearing a blue zip up top and jeans, He was in a silver two seat pick up truck, VRN and make unknown.

Neighbourhood Watch - "999" or "101"? (a reminder)

Thanks to Orston NHW for the following useful advice:

 

The following guidelines will help to ensure we contact the police in the most efficient way

Emergency Calls – 999

Should only be used where police attendance is required immediately such as when a crime is in progress or someone is at risk of attack

 

Local Police – 101

This number should be used for all other enquires including reporting crimes which have already happened (e.g. stolen car / property damage), where there is no sign of an offender. Also, for general police information and advice

 

Meeting a police officer

If you wish to meet with a police officer you can call “101” and make an appointment. Appointments are prioritised depending on the nature of the request.  An appointment is necessary because stations are not always manned.

 

Scheduled appointments free up police officers' time, enabling them to resolve more incidents more quickly than they could if they travelled to see everyone who is a victim of crime.

 

Crimestoppers – 0800 555 111

If you wish to report a crime anonymously use this number

It’s very important to report crimes as otherwise rural communities may not be given the required level of resourcing they deserve.

Good Morning,

The City of London Police, in partnership with Get Safe Online, has put together a National Cyber Crime Survey. Its purpose is to learn about people's awareness of online safety and experiences of cybercrime, with a view to improve our knowledge and understanding and to help provide a better response to victims. The results will help police forces gain a better idea of the challenges they are facing. If you have a spare 15 minutes, we would be grateful if you could complete a short questionnaire. The link can be found here:
