Good Afternoon, Earith and Needingworth District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 25th June to 1st July - but first a warning about leaving windows open.
In St Ives this week there were two burglaries where the thieves entered the houses via windows that had been left open for ventilation. Burglars can take advantage of even the smallest of open windows to get into a house - please keep this in mind during this hot weather, and don't make it easy for them.
Needingworth Road, St Ives – Police are investigating a ‘road rage’ incident that happened at a filling station on Needingworth Road, St Ives, on Monday morning, 24th June, in which a woman was threatened and intimidated by a man apparently frustrated by being behind her in the queue at the pumps. (Ref 35/44316/19)
Station Road, Bluntisham – Thieves stole the number plates from a silver VW car, left in a car-park on Station Road, Bluntisham, at some time between 08:30 am and 15:00 pm on Friday 28th June. (Ref 35/45725/19)

Bluntisham – Police pursued a red Vauxhall car that failed to stop in Bluntisham when checks showed that it had no valid insurance, late on Friday evening, 28th June.

The car was seized and towed away whilst police traced details of the registered owner. (Ref CC-28062019-0604)
