Local News update

Please see the below OP Galileo section that details the ongoing work on rural crime. Of note there have been several reports of damage to fields and crops by Hare Coursers driving vehicles over farmers land.

Within the East Wolds and Coastal area there are no specific trends noted with most recorded crimes linked to a known offender or being domestic related. A report was received on the 29th of October that a vehicle was damaged on Hutton Road, Hutton Cranswick. Several screws were found embedded into the tyres.

In the Dirffield and Rural ward area incidents of vehicle crime have increased. On the 9th of October on Wood Crescent a rear windscreen was damaged. On the 11th two vehicles were damaged on Victoria Road and one on River Head. A Honda moped was reported stolen on the 14th from New Road and on the 25th a vehicle tyre was punctured in Collinson Close. On the 26th property was stolen from a vehicle parked at The Driffield Health Club on Skerne Road and on the 30th three panels were scratched on a vehicle parked on Westgate.

Local officers will be increasing patrols in the area. If you have any information regarding these crime please call us on 101.

We also ask for the public to call us on 999 if persons are in the process or about to commit crime.

Also of note the owner of a quad bike disturbed suspects on the 5th October in Everingham. The Quad bike was within a locked building. Entry was gained by removing wooden slats to the side of the building. The Quad bike was not stolen in this instance. 

Increase in Plant Theft in East Riding Of Yorkshire

Over the past few weeks we have had a spike in theft of plant machinery in the East Riding of Yorkshire. A large proportion of this has been surrounding construction sites within our rural communities. Essentially house building locations, where construction ceases on a night/weekend and staff on the sites are leaving items, such as mini diggers, tandem rollers, dumper trucks etc on site.

Please ensure that when workers leave the site, plant materiel is left parked in a position making it difficult to move from the site, that keys are not left in units. Consider the use of trackers on equipment and also basic site security, such as CCTV. Keeping vehicles from view and as inaccessible as possible will reduce instances of theft

We will be proactively targeting areas that are susceptible to such thefts but would also ask that the public be vigilant and report any sightings of suspicious vehicles or persons.

Please use the 999 system if you feel that a crime is in progress or about to be committed. 

For those of you who may be involved in some way with plant machinery please click the below link for detailed crime prevention advice.
