Good Afternoon, Somersham District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 26th to 31st May:
High Street, Somersham – A man’s wallet is believed to have been stolen from his pocket whilst he was shopping on Somersham High Street on Thursday lunchtime, 27th May. The victim remembers being bumped into in the shop by a woman who apologised and then walked off, but when he came to till to pay for his shopping, he found that the wallet was missing, although it had been there earlier. Police hope that CCTV footage may show the theft taking place. (Ref 35/32583/21)
And Finally … Drinking and Driving…
A 40-year old man was arrested for drink-driving in St Ives last week when officers noticed a car being driven in a suspicious manner. The car was stopped and a roadside breath-test administered which returned a result of 93. In custody, an evidential sample returned a value of 83 – the limit is 35.
Police say: “The limit may be 35 but you’ll be a real hero by staying at zero! As we head into summer, if partying is a must, designate a driver that you can trust. Make it a night to remember, not a night to forget!”.
