Update on crimes - Mar 2018

Theft from Motor Vehicles 

We have had several reports. 3 of these have taken place in Canbury Place Car park with windows being smashed and items taken. Unfortunately no witnesses.

1 in Dagmar Road which took place at approx. 7.15am on 12th March. The suspect was witnessed by a neighbour trying car doors before successfully entering a vehicle and taking items. Suspect was challenged and made off before Police arrival. Described as a white male aged 30 – 40 years.

1 in Clifton Road which took place any time between 3rd and 4th March. No damage to the vehicle.

Please remember when locking your vehicles, check the handle. Do not leave any valuables in the vehicle and nothing in view which may suggest there are valuables in the vehicle.

If you see or hear anything suspicious, report to the police at the time on 999 if urgent.

Theft of Lead

As per previous email, theft of lead is still occurring on the borough and surrounding Boroughs. We have had no further reports on Canbury however there are venues that have lead that could be vulnerable to this crime.

Engagements and Community

The team have been carrying out a number of engagements across the ward and at times working with other wards.

These have included contact points outside shops and train stations, Cuppa with a Copper in various locations, school and nursery talks, a crime prevention talk at the MILAAP centre on Acre Road and Knife Arch operations at Kingston college on Richmond Road and College Roundabout.
