What's Happening In Your Area?




There have recently been several incidents in the area where vehicles have been broken into and property stolen. Please be vigilant and make sure that nothing is left in your vehicle overnight and your vehicle is secured. Good practice is to leave the glove box open and remove the parcel shelf. By doing this you are displaying to any opportunist that there is nothing in your vehicle of any value.


There have been an increase in incidents of youths causing an annoyance in Snaith especially on the Ben Bailey Estate area. Through social media, house 2 house, partnership working and speaking to residents we have names of those allegedly involved. We have been visiting these addresses and spoken to those identified. We are still in the process of speaking to the remainder. Please report on 101 the non-emergency number if you are experiencing problems still. In this way a log can be created which will enable us to have a true reflection of the issues and patrol accordingly. Please do not post directly onto social media without informing us.

There has been an increase in rural crime in the Snaith, Airmyn and the Marshlands ward area. Suspect/s have been entering outbuildings using various  methods ranging from cutting jemmy locks, forcing and prising open the door, and entering through unlocked /open doors. Items stolen include tools, scrap metal, quad bike, a trailer and other  vehicles.  Please be extra viglant and report anything suspuiocus to us on 101 the non emergency  number.  We advise you to take photographs of your valuables and to make a note of any serial numbers  for future reference. It is also best practice to make sure your items are secured within the building using a ground anchor if appropiate to do so.

The following list shows some of the crimes that have occurred in the previous month in your area:

There was an attempt to steal a catalytic convertor from a vehicle parked in Snaith.

Two secure vans parked in a business park in Airmyn were broken into and tools stolen.

Tools were stolen from a rear garden of a property in Rawcliffe.

Entry was gained into an insecure van parked in Snaith and tools stolen.

Catalytic converter thefts - how to protect your vehicle

We are warning motorists to be on their guard following a number of reports in the last month of catalytic converters being stolen in our areas (Goole, Pocklington and North Cave).

While all cars are potentially at risk, thieves are most likely to target hybrids, where the catalytic converter is used less and the metals are less likely to be damaged, or vehicles with a higher ground clearance, such as vans and SUVs.

We are investigating all the reports we have received and are following up a number of lines of enquiry. In the meantime, we want to help prevent further thefts from occurring, so please pass on our advice to anyone you think may be at risk and, if you see anyone acting suspiciously, please call us on our non-emergency 101 line.

Among the steps you can take to protect your vehicle are:

  • Speak to your local garage about having suitable locks or guards fitted. They can also advise you on getting your catalytic converter security marked to make it harder for thieves to dispose of.
  • Park your car in a locked garage where possible. If that isn’t an option, park in a well lit and busy area.
  • Park with your exhaust close to walls, fences or high kerbs, which will make it harder to access.
  • Catalytic converters are at the front of your vehicle, so park facing walls or other vehicles where possible, which will make it harder to remove.
