Good Afternoon, Ramsey District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 19th to 28th November – we’re back to our traditional Friday publication day now, so a slightly longer period is covered this week.
Herne Road, Ramsey St Mary’s – Police seized and towed away a blue-grey off-road vehicle found on Herne Road, Ramsey St Mary’s, on Thursday afternoon, 21st November. The car had been used for crime and was linked to a hare-coursing incident near Warboys earlier in the day. Three men and three dogs were with the vehicle at the time, and the suspects were reported for associated offences. (Ref CC-21112019-0179)
Herne Road, Ramsey St Mary’s – Thieves stole a black Ford pick-up from the driveway of its owner’s house on Herne Road, Ramsey St Mary’s at around 1:00 am early on Friday morning, 22nd November. The theft was captured on CCTV. (Ref 35/83523/19)
Ugg Mere Court Road, Ramsey Heights – Police received a report of a large amount of mud left by agricultural vehicles on Ugg Mere Court Road, Ramsey Heights, posing a hazard to traffic, on Wednesday, 20th November. A police patrol was dispatched to assess the situation but no serious problem was found.
However, further reports were received on Thursday and Friday, 21st and 22nd November, and the Council Highways Department was asked to attend to carry out a further assessment and for the surface to be cleaned as necessary. (Refs CC-20112019-0153, CC-21112019-0197 and CC-22112019-0089)
Great Whyte – Thieves broke into an unoccupied building at the top of Great Whyte near the old mill building at some time between Tuesday 19th and Tuesday 26th November by removing boarding from a window at the back, then stole a washing machine and a gas cooker that had been newly delivered. The goods were taken out of the building via the front door, which they forced open. (Ref 35/84597/19)
Old Station Road, Ramsey – Thieves broke into a white Mercedes car left parked on Old Station Road, Ramsey, overnight on Monday 25th / Tuesday 26th November, and stole several items that had been left in the glove compartment including sunglasses, perfume and some loose change. No damage was caused to the car and it is not clear how the thieves managed to get inside. CCTV shows a male in a white van behaving suspiciously in the vicinity of the car at around 3:00 am on the Tuesday morning. (Ref 35/84544/19)
Wood Lane, Ramsey – Thieves broke in to a shed in the garden of a house on Wood Lane, Ramsey, during the night of Wednesday 27th / Thursday 28th November, and stole a new hedge trimmer from inside, leaving other gardening equipment in the shed untouched. The shed door was damaged in the process of being jemmied open, and the padlock was broken off and removed. It is thought that the intruders probably entered the premises by climbing over a gate at the front and then walked around to the shed at the back. (Ref 35/85096/19)
The Malting, Ramsey – Thieves stole the front and rear number plates from a black Mini car that was parked on the driveway of its owner’s house at The Malting, Ramsey, in the early hours of Thursday 28th November. (Ref 35/85096/19)
