PCSO’s Update

Meadow Lane, Hemingford Grey – Between Monday 11th and Friday 22nd April there were several instances of criminal damage by unknown persons to vehicles awaiting repair or scrapping in a compound here. One male suspect was observed on one occasion, but he fled when approached.

Marsh Lane, Hemingford Grey – Sometime between midday on Friday 15th and 11:30 am on Friday 22nd April, unknown persons entered the back garden of a large detached house here and forced entry into two wooden cabins. The contents of one cabin were disturbed but nothing appears to have been stolen from either cabin.

Potton Road, Hilton – At 8:00 am on Sunday 24th April, police were called to a road traffic collision between a car and a cyclist. Initial reports gave this location, but it was subsequently found to be on the B1040 towards Papworth. The cyclist had sustained some injuries and needed to be taken to hospital by ambulance.

Chapel Close, Hilton – Sometime overnight on Thursday 28th / Friday 29th April, a resident’s car left parked on the roadside was criminally damaged by being scratched along the passenger’s side by unknown persons.

Weir Road, Hemingford Grey – At 6:30 pm on Friday 29th April, police pursued a car that was being dangerously driven along the B1040 towards St Ives, and stopped it on Weir Road. The two occupants were found to be in possession of a quantity of cannabis and drug-related equipment, and were arrested and charged with drugs offences.

Cambridge Road, Hemingford Abbots – At 1:45 pm on Saturday 30th April, a distraction theft was carried out by two unknown males at a golf equipment shop. One of the offenders distracted staff whilst the other stole items of golfing equipment, then both drove off in a silver people carrier.

Stepping Stones, Hemingford Grey – On Sunday 24th April, police received a report from an elderly resident that she had seen an intruder in her garden in the middle of the night the previous Thursday, and that her neighbour had had a similar experience the previous day. A PCSO visited and spoke to both residents, giving advice on security and explaining about the ‘Bobby Scheme’, the charity which gives support and advice to victims of burglary.

Information on the ‘Bobby Scheme’ is available of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary web-site here: https://www.cambs-police.co.uk/victims/bobby_scheme.asp or on their own web-site here: www.thebobbyscheme.org .

London Road, St Ives – On Sunday 24th April, police received a report from a resident who had found two unknown males in their late teens or early 20s, trespassing in a field where she kept her horses. When challenged they became abusive before leaving the location. One male was described as having dark hair and the other was ginger haired.

Tern Drive, St Ives – At 6:30 pm on Monday 2nd May, police received a report of a large yellow/brown dog found loose on the road here, maybe injured because it appeared to have blood on its fur. The out-of-hours dog warden was contacted who took the animal to Wood Green Rescue Centre. Later in the evening, police received another call, from residents in London Road, reporting a lost dog of a similar description. Hopefully these two calls both related to the same animal and it has now been reunited with its owners.
