Good Afternoon, Upwood and The Raveleys District Members –
A couple of days later than normal, and at the height of Storm Ciara, here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 31st January to 8th February:
Durham Way, Wyton-on-the-Hill – A shed in the garden of a house on Durham Way, Wyton-on-the-Hill, was broken into at some time between Sunday evening, 2nd, and Monday afternoon, 3rd February. Intruders climbed over a fence to enter the back garden, then took garden tools and a bicycle from the shed. Some damage was caused to the back lawn but the stolen bike was later found abandoned in bushes nearby. Two locks on a back gate were also damaged, presumably by the offenders as they left the property. (Ref 35/8653/20)
Churchill Avenue, Wyton-on-the-Hill – Intruders got into and damaged a vacant house on Churchill Avenue, Wyton-on-the-Hill, at some time between early January and Tuesday 4th February, when the break-in was discovered. A smashed window was discovered at the back of the house and investigations revealed that the house had been entered and some damage caused to fixtures and fittings, however nothing is thought to have been stolen. Forensic investigations are continuing. (Ref 35/8896/20)
Huntingdon Road, Upwood – Police received a report of a suspicious incident outside a house on Huntingdon Road, Upwood, that happened in the early hours of Wednesday 5th February. Domestic CCTV recorded pictures of two vehicles, a Mini and a Land-Rover, pulling up onto the driveway at around 3:00 am. Some people with torches got out and loitered around for about 30 minutes before driving off again. No attempt was made to enter the house or any out-buildings and no damage was caused.
