Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good Evening, Hemingfords District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 5th to 11th February:
St Margaret‘s Road, Wyton – A resident of St Margaret’s Road, Wyton, was the victim of a distraction theft on Tuesday lunchtime, 5th February, when she was approached by two strangers, a male and a female, whilst in her car on her driveway. Whilst one of the suspects engaged her in conversation, the other managed to steal a bank card from her handbag. When the suspects left, the victim found the card-holder discarded on the back seat of her car. Officers arrived quickly, searched the area for the suspects and spoke to neighbours but no-one matching the description could be found. (Ref 35/8557/19)
A14 Flyover, Galley Hill – One person was taken to hospital following a collision involving two cars on the Galley Hill flyover at 9:30 am on Wednesday 6th February. Both damaged cars needed towing away. There is no more information at the moment on the condition of the injured person. (Ref CC-06022019-0097)
Rideaway, Hemingford Abbots – Fly-tippers in a white Transit van were seen dumping material on the roadside on Rideaway, Hemingford Abbots, at lunchtime on Friday 8th February. (Ref 35/9372/19)
New Road, Hemingford Abbots – Thieves stole the front and rear number-plates from a silver Vauxhall car left parked outside its owner’s house on New Road, Hemingford Abbots, at some time between midday on Friday 8th and midday on Saturday 9th February. (Ref 35/9612/19)
Ware Lane, Wyton – Police were notified of a break-in and burglary at a house on Ware Lane, Wyton, on Sunday 10th February, although the crime could have happened at any time since the beginning of the month. Intruders broke in by smashing a kitchen window at the back of the house, and then targeted the upstairs rooms, leaving evidence of a thorough and untidy search. At the moment it is not certain what might have been stolen, but officers have made enquiries at neighbouring houses and are aware of reports of a suspicious van seen in the area in recent days. It is hope that CCTV recordings may be useful in the investigation. (Ref 35/9960/19)
Hemingford Road, St Ives – Police are investigating a break-in at a house on Hemingford Road, St Ives, that happened at 5:00 pm on Monday evening, 11th February. An intruder broke in via a conservatory at the side of the house but was disturbed by a resident, whereupon he fled. Nothing was taken in the incident. Officers were quickly at the scene and searched the area, but no-one was found. Enquiries have also been made at neighbouring houses and police hope that CCTV cameras may have recorded something useful. (Ref 35/10170/19)
