|Sgt James Hobson (Police - Hampton)|
Since the beginning of this month we saw a spike in the number of burglaries, particularly in the Hampton area.
From the beginning of the month there have been four burglaries in Hampton the last one having occurred on the 11th of July. The common theme with all of these burglaries has been patio windows being smashed and the suspect has taken electrical items. These offences have happened during the day.
Since the 11th, we have not seen any further offences. We have been putting out proactive patrols in the area during the day.
There has been one burglary dwelling in Stanground since the beginning of the month. This offence shared similar features with those that have occurred in Hampton, that is, during daylight hours, a rear window having been smashed and electrical items being taken.
We have a suspect who we are seeking at this time for Stanground and Hampton burglaries.
There have been two shed burglaries in the Stanground area – please ensure that sheds are locked and any access gates to your gardens are locked as well.
Fletton and Woodston
There have been 3 dwelling burglaries in the Fletton and Woodston area, the last having occurred on the 08th of July, again, we have a suspect for these offences who we are pursuing. These offences involved doors being forced in the later hours of the evening.
The good news is that since we have developed suspects for the burglary dwelling offences, the burglaries have stopped.
Be assured though that we won’t be taking our eye off the ball until we are satisfied that we have tackled the problem and stopped it.
Other Crime Matters:
We have had 8 thefts from motor vehicles since the beginning of the month. Three vehicles have been targeted in the Stanground area for catalytic convertors. If you can get your vehicles into a garage, this is the nest place for them to be to take the opportunity away.
The remaining thefts have taken place within Hampton where there have been three offences and the remainder have been in Fletton and Woodston.
These offences have been opportunist matters where items of value that have been left on display have been targeted, for example handbags and small electricals. Keep valuables out of sight when you are not with your vehicle.
