Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good Afternoon, Ramsey 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, 18th to 28th October:
Holme Road, Ramsey St Mary’s – Thieves stole a green and yellow John Deere ‘6600’ model tractor from a field between Holme and Ramsey St Mary’s at some time between Friday 11th and Friday 18th October. (Ref 35/74608/19)
Herne Road, Ramsey St Mary’s – Two large concrete ornaments were stolen from the driveway of a house on Herne Road, Ramsey St Mary’s, on Saturday evening, 19th October. The ornaments, concrete ducks mounted on top of two pillars, are heavy and would have required two people to lift them down. (Ref 35/74936/19)
Herne Road, Ramsey St Mary’s – Three males were disturbed in the act of trying to break in to a house on Herne Road, Ramsey St Mary’s, late on Saturday evening, 19th October.

Police searched the area but unfortunately no-one matching the descriptions could be found. (Ref 35/74991/19)

Biggin Lane, Ramsey – A thief stole a chain-saw from the back garden of a house on Biggin Lane on Friday morning, 25th October.

(Ref 35/76411/19)
Abbots Close, Ramsey – Thieves stole a piece of digging machinery from a trailer left on the green at Abbots Close, Ramsey, by a contractor working on gas pipes in the area, at some time between lunchtime on Thursday 24th and Friday morning, 25th October. The ‘pecker’ is a heavy piece of equipment and would have needed two people to lift it out of the trailer, but at the moment no-one has reported noticing anything suspicious in the area at the time. (Ref 35/76489/19)
High Street, Ramsey – Thieves managed to break in to the garage of a house on Ramsey High Street overnight on Friday 25th / Saturday 26th October and steal two bicycles from inside.

Ugg Mere Court Road, Ramsey Heights – Police received a report of three off-road motor bikes being ridden up and down Ugg Mere Court Road in an anti-social and dangerous manner, on Sunday afternoon, 27th October.
