Towards the end of the month we have received around 13 reports of outboard motors being stolen from boats secured in boat compounds. Most have been from the Wilsthorpe compound. We ask the public report anything suspicious they see at the time. Also could boat owners to review their security arrangements.
We would also like to highlight that we have been getting repeated calls to the Alcohol Prohibition Zone on South Cliff Gardens (Ebor Shelter). A reminder that officers do have the power of initiate a fine for those who flout the rules.
There have been issues with young drivers speeding in the area of Flamborough, Bempton Lane and Limekiln Lane recently. We will be looking to use are various powers to combat this.
We have also had a number of reported sightings of drones that have been flying in the area of St. Hilda Street, Edwardian Drive and Savage Road in the late evenings. There is lots of legislation regarding the flying of drones, and the reports that we have had in respect of these it is clear that the legislation is not being adhered to. Please be mindful if you have or own a drone and make yourselves aware of the legislation that goes with the flying of these aircraft
We have received several reports that off road and quad bike users are riding in an Anti-Social manner. A section 59 warning was issued in the field behind Matson Court and we are aware of issues close to Gypsey Road. These problems will likely increase once farmers start to harvest as these bikes tend to be ridden on stubble fields. We are also mindful that this may heighten the risk of hay and stack fires and would ask the public to report any concerns they have. We also ask that farmers consider the below advice from Humberside Fire and Rescue.
We are specifically targeting County Lines crime as part of Op Galaxy’s intensified action. This is where a young persons may be coerced into dealing for older persons and out of area gangs.
