We also had 3 criminal damage to vehicles these offences took place in Albemarle Road on the same evening. The suspect involved was seen by a resident and was soon arrested by local officers.




Beware of Dippers

The Copers Cope team have been visiting shops making staff and security guards aware that dipping offences have been taking place in the High Street and asking the stores to put up posters advising shoppers to keep their bags close to them and not left unattended on trolleys etc.

-It only takes a moment for a suspect to remove a purse or a wallet from an unattended bag.

-Please be aware of people around you, particularly if they are walking by you in close contact.

-Suspects often work in teams and may use distraction techniques to get to your property.

If you need police for an urgent matter where you are in danger or fear always dial 999. If you wish to see a police officer for a non emergency matter, then please dial 101
