Recent spike in crime

Comments Off on Recent spike in crime

Following on from the conversations we’ve had with police and chatter that there has been on Facebook our local PC Phil Martindale has been in touch and has the following to say:

“I’m sure you are already aware through social media of the recent increase of suspicious persons trying door handles of properties and vehicles in the early hours.

These have been reported through to the police and we are currently investigating all lines of enquiry.

There have been different types of incidents reported to us, from thefts from insecure vehicles and dwellings to properties being entered by damaging doors etc. One person was charged with two reports of thefts from vehicles at the beginning of January. The latest incidents have caught three persons on bikes trying door handles around 2am.

Could you put out a request for residents to be vigilant and to secure vehicles and properties please.
I have received correspondence from County Hall Highways that they are looking to make sure the correct street lighting is present.

We will continue to proactively patrol this area.”

We have recently been given the vehicle crime figures for Beat 8 – which covers Haddon Way, Grange Park and Shelthorpe Heights areas. The information has been gathered since April 2013, and breaks down into a number of different area :

Insecure on the street – 8 (11%)
Insecure on driveway – 52 (70%)
Break Glass/Force Door – 7 (9%)
Both Number Plates – 2 (3%)
Single Number plate – 2 (3%)
Catalytic Convertor – 2 (3%)
External – 1 (1%)

The majority of the report crimes above, occurred on the Grange Park and Shelthorpe Heights areas. We have also seen an increase in thefts from vehicles on the Haddon Way estate. We are urging people to make sure their vehicles are secure before leaving unattended. Also make sure house doors are also secure. The police have increased patrols in the area, however we can greatly reduce crime figures by doing our part.

Lock it, check it, leave it
