We need help with:


·         Has anyone seen young lads carrying ladders in relation to Bader Close Burglary.

If so when, where? This could assist with CCTV enquiries.

·         Did anyone else witness the incident in Carron Drive, the suspect is believed to have run across the parkway towards the Chinese Restaurant?

Any witnesses please contact police.


Other matters of note:


·         Following a recent increase in dwelling burglary offences in across the city, particularly in the Stanground area a male from Werrington has been identified, arrested and admitted to 15 dwelling burglary offences across the city dating back to the end of August.

He has been remanded to prison and awaits sentence. It is likely that he will admit further offences and is keen to work with the police in order to do so....

·         Following a recent series of night time walk in burglary offences in the Millfield / Eastfield area of Peterborough a male suspect from that area has been identified, arrested and is currently on remand awaiting sentence. He again wants to work with the police to identify other offences he has committed.
