Local Crime Alert
Since the last Neighbourhood watch brief we have had one report of theft of patio furniture from a garden in Empingham. This incident occurred during the hours of darkness when the owners were in situ. Entry to the garden was gained from the rear of the property and CCTV images are being investigated.
One report of criminal damage relating to a farm animal in Egleton. This incident occurred during daylight hours and resulted in the death of a sheep.
Beat Surgery at the Market Place, Buttercross, Oakham on 27th July at 14:00.
Lost and Found Property – Every week I receive items of lost property ranging from keys to wallets to ID documents. Sometimes I am successful in tracing the owners and sometimes not. I would ask all residents to make the Police Desk their first port of call for any lost or found items.
Distraction Burglary – Not all burglars break into your home, some try to trick or con their way in. Known as distraction burglars, or bogus callers, they will try to mislead you or distract your attention to get into your home and steal your money or valuables.
