The following crime has been reported to the police on the Rutland North beat for November:
Burglary Dwelling – Ryhall
Theft of Motor Vehicle – Ryhall and an attempt at Stretton (Both plant machinery on site)
Theft from Motor Vehicle – Cottesmore (number plates), 2 x A1, Egleton, Barnsdale, 2 x Langham, 2 x Catalytic Coverters stolen ( 1 in Langham, 1 in Market Overton)
Assault – Ryhall, Langham (road rage), Greetham
Criminal Damage – Great Casterton (crops), Hambleton
We have noticed a spike in Theft from vehicles specifically as the nights draw in when parked in isolated locations. We ask that if you leave you vehicle please hide any valuables.
There have also been 2 catalytic converters this month stolen which have targeted traditionally 4×4 vehicles and people carriers as they are higher off the ground and so easier access. Please keep these type of vehicles if possible locked up and out of sight.
The current priority remains as Rural Crime and we have targeted isolated locations in Rutland but have noted 2 recent theft of plant machinery and so will be identifying building sites to try and offer crime prevention advice to ensure vehicles are not a easy target.
If you have any issues or concerns please feel free to contact me, many thanks
