Burglary reports - There have been several reports of burglaries during April, two of which whereby attempts were made to gain entry via patio doors with unsuccessful results. A property in Riplingham Road was also entered via the front door after the locks had possibly been drilled out. Nothing was stolen. In Marshall Avenue a property was approached by 5 males all wearing balaclavas and attack the rear door in an attempt to gain entry, they are disturbed by complainant’s dog and make off in a small vehicle. Following extensive enquiries we have 4 named offenders for the offence and our investigation continues. Two further properties were targeted within the West Ella Road area, a vehicle along with personal items and cash was stolen from one property and a number of unknown persons targeted new build properties in Alexander Grove area causing damage in the process but no items were stolen. A further two reports were made across Tranby Ward last month, one of which involved suspects entering an insecure new build property on a construction site in Vickerman Close, steal a work man’s tools from within before making off again. Another property in Laburnum Drive which was secured and unoccupied has been entered by opening the conservatory windows, nothing stolen from within.

A further five reports were made across Tranby Ward last month, a motorcycle which was locked and secure had been stolen from Grimston Road area after suspects cut the chain in order to steal it. A vehicle is stolen from Hawkshead Green after victim makes a delivery at an address nearby, leaving car keys while leaving the vehicle unattended, suspect gets into said vehicle and drives off along with other personal items including houses keys that belong to the victim. A further three vehicles all had deliberate damage caused to their vehicles such as wing mirrors being deliberately smashed off.
Check Your Fob has done its Job! Don’t assume your vehicle is secure – always check doors are locked before you walk away and recheck before you settle down for the night. Consider a faraday pouch to keep your keys/fob safe and never leave them in range of your vehicle – think about keeping them at the other side of the house. Please remove all valuables from vehicle when left unattended and leave the glove-box open and empty to reduce the opportunity of becoming a victim
Shop theft - – Six reports were made across Tranby Ward last month, one of which resulted in the successful arrest of an adult male who was charged and summonsed for the offence.

Community Priorities for May 2022
Preventing Residential Burglary
There are plenty of simple steps motorists can take to prevent becoming a victim of Hanoi-style burglaries… parking your car in a garage if possible, keeping car keys out of view and easy reach, locking doors and windows, and using a wheel clamp.”
Humberside Police also advise keeping valuable property hidden from view and making sure that lights are left on at various times, to give the impression that someone is home. In addition to this, particular emphasis is placed upon the need for reliable and effective house alarms, secure door locks, windows containing locks and CCTV systems in place, where possible.
As we enter spring, our Policing Teams from all three Wards will continue to be out and about providing residents with advice on home security.
