Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good Afternoon, Hemingfords District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community. I’m sorry that this week’s report is a few days later than normal and so covers a longer period, 15th to 24th October:
Goldcrest Road, St Ives – Police and an ambulance were called to a collision between a car and a cyclist on Goldcrest Road, St Ives, on Tuesday morning, 15th October. Fortunately no-one was seriously hurt. (Ref CC-15102019-0093)
Gore Tree Road, Hemingford Grey – A house on Gore Tree Road, Hemingford Grey, was broken into at some time between Friday 11th and Friday 18th October, whilst the owners were away. Intruders appear to have entered by forcing open French doors at the back of the property with some kind of tool or implement, then carried out an untidy search before leaving via the same route. At the moment it is not thought that anything was stolen, but investigations are on-going. (Ref 35/75908/19)
Potton Road, Hilton – Police were called to a collision involving a lorry and two cars at the bridge over the new A14 on Potton Road, Hilton, on Friday lunchtime, 18th October. Few details are available but it is known that one person was taken to hospital. (Ref CC-18102019-0295)
Hemingford Road, St Ives – A terraced house on Hemingford Road, St Ives, was burgled at some time overnight on Friday 18th / Saturday 19th October. Intruders entered via a kitchen window at the back of the house, and stole a lady’s handbag containing bank cards and other documents, as well as items from the kitchen, before leaving via the back door. Scenes-of-crime officers have attended and investigations are continuing. (Ref 35/74917/19)
Catalytic Converter thefts from Meadow Lane Park and Ride
There was another theft of a catalytic converter from a car left on the Meadow Lane Park and Ride car park in St Ives this week. Police are dedicating resources to combat the issue but need the public’s help in remaining vigilant and reporting anything suspicious. Use the 101 non-emergency number if you see anything suspicious, or 999 if a crime is actually in progress.
And Finally – New PC Joins the Huntingdon Neighbourhood Policing Team
PC Phil Hepworth is one of the new officers joining the Huntingdon Neighbourhood Policing Team that covers St Ives, Ramsey and all the villages in between.
PC Hepworth brings five years’ experience as a PCSO and a further five working across the County as a response officer.
Born and bred in the area, PC Hepworth already knows his beat well and is looking forward to introducing himself to everyone (criminals included!) and making an impact. The issues that he will be focusing on include burglary, drug dealing, anti-social behaviour, youth offending and hate-crime – getting to the root cause of the problems to solve them for the long term
Welcome, PC Hepworth!
