Good Afternoon, Warboys and Bury 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.
Land Near A141 Warboys – Police received a report of hare-coursers seen on land near the a141 at Warboys on Thursday morning, 21st November. Four men with three dogs in a large grey-blue off-road vehicle with silver mudguards had been seen, coming from the Somersham direction. The car had some damage to its front end, having been driven over a large log blocking access to the fields. The vehicle had last been seen heading into Warboys village but unfortunately a police patrol was unable to locate it when the area was searched shortly later.
However, a vehicle matching the description with three men and three dogs was later found in Ramsey St Mary’s, and was seized and towed away. The three males were reported for associated offences. (Refs CC-21112019-0132 and CC-21112019-0179)
