Weekly Policing Update – Somersham District 22nd to 28th February

Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 22nd to 28th February:

Bridge Road, Broughton – Police received a report of poachers operating in a field off Bridge Road, Broughton, late on Sunday evening, 24th February. Two off-road vehicles had been spotted with two men in each, one of whom was using a bright spotlight to petrify animals. A police patrol was dispatched and officers searched the area, but unfortunately the poachers had managed to drive off the field through a gate and escape. (Ref CC-24022019-0544)

Parkhall Road, Somersham – A lady lost her purse, probably dropped somewhere on Parkhall Road, Somersham, on Wednesday morning, 27th February. She was unaware of the loss until she received a phone call from someone pretending to be from a major high street department store, asking her to provide her security details and PIN number. Fortunately the victim realised that this was a scam and cancelled all of her cards before any fraudulent transactions were made. (Ref 35/14075/19)

Church Street, Somersham – The side window of a silver Citroen van, left parked outside its owner’s house on Church Street, Somersham, was smashed by an unknown person during the night of Wednesday 27th / Thursday 28th February. This set off the van’s alarm and probably frightened the perpetrator off, as the van was not entered and nothing was stolen. (Ref 35/14282/19)
St Ives Road, Somersham – Police were called to an incident on St Ives Road, Somersham, on Thursday afternoon, 28th February, where a single car had left the road and rolled over. Fortunately the two occupants escaped unhurt and recovery of the car was already underway so no further police involvement was required. (Ref CC-28022019-0323)
