Residential burglary – We have had at least 11 reported residential burglaries across both Wards during October, 3 of which were attempts. One involves five male youths forcing entry to a domestic garage, Kingston Road and cause damage to the garage door, the use of force alerts one of the neighbours who comes out and speaks to males in question. The males make off from the scene and are apprehended a short while later and two of the five males are found to be in possession a crow bar and a pair of bolt croppers resulting in arrest. Enquiries ongoing.
Vehicle crime - 7 reports of vehicle related crime during October, 4 of which were theft from vehicle and 1 was interference with vehicle. Remember, take it with you or hide it! Your mobile phone, coins for the car park, sunglasses, packs of medication or other items that can earn quick cash are irresistible to the opportunist thief. Remember, the cost of replacing a window is often much more than that of what’s stolen. And it should go without saying that wallets, handbags, purses and credit cards should never be left in an unattended vehicle.
Criminal damage – 3 reports of criminal damage across all wards during October, involving damage to garden plants, wall and ornaments. Throughout November 2019 officers from the Community Policing Team will continue with high visibility patrols to deter offences of Anti-social behaviour. The team are continuing to work with partners of both retail and licensed premises to solve the issue of anti- social behaviour. Any intelligence re this issue can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers 0800 555 111 or Humberside Police 101.
