From PCSO Steph Annette
Firstly I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope that 2014 brings everyone good fortune. On the whole the Christmas period was fairly busy with many calls in regards to weather related incidents e.g trees down, stuck in floods etc. There were also a few drink related incidents in Bromyard Town which Officers are still investigating. These involved a smashed shop window and a smashed car window. We also attended a high volume of road traffic collisions, again some of these may have been caused by the adverse weather we received.
On the subject of the recent weather conditions, it has left the roads in a pretty poor state with flooding still around in some areas. As most of you will be heading back to work over the next couple of days, please be extra careful as the wet roads are quite treacherous, especially with the predicted freezing temperatures.
Incident Number 261-S-201213. A trampoline was stolen from a garden in the Docklow area. Nothing was seen or heard. Please report any suspicious activity to us on101.
Incident Number !76-S-221213. Refers to the theft of Turkeys, which was reported in the last Rural Watch Alert by my colleague, PCSO Sue Berrett.
Incident Number 281-S-221213. Lead flashing was stolen from an isolated rural property on
the Bromyard Downs. The flashing was stolen from the gulley/roof area, so thieves would have needed to climb onto the building. Have you seen anything suspicious on the Downs road? Please call us on 101 quoting the above reference number if you have.
Incident Number 146-S-281213. This is an ongoing incident in the Bishops Frome area. A
couple have been having their vehicles damaged whilst parked in the area. This latest incident is one vehicle having two of their tyres damaged. Please be vigilant in this area.
Incident Number: 329-S-221213. A report was received by a rural watch member about a
vehicle parked on the A417 near the junction with the A49. The vehicle is believed to belong to poachers who have been trespassing across farm land in the area. Officers were dispatched but could find no trace of the vehicle. The vehicle has been flagged for our automatic number plate recognition cameras (ANPR).
A Bromyard resident has been disqualified for driving for 20 months after being charged on the 30th Dec 2013 for drink driving. The male was twice over the legal drink drive limit when he was caught by Officers. That’s one less danger on our roads. A great result!
Right that’s it for now folks, don’t make it easy for thieves keep it locked.
