eCops – Weekly Policing Update – Somersham District 5th to 11th April

Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 5th to 11th April:

Somersham – Police issued warnings via Social Media to residents of Somersham on Saturday afternoon, 6th April, following several reports of a suspicious male seen apparently knocking on the doors of houses where no cars were parked, at around 3:30 pm. The concern was that he might have been checking to find houses where no-one was home.

Reports were received from residents in the Windsor Gardens, Providence Close and Feoffees Road areas of the village on both the Saturday and the Sunday. When the male was challenged at one house, he stated that he was there to carry out driveway work but this was not correct.

The male was described as white, in his late thirties to mid forties, of medium build and wearing a blue zipped coat and a dark-coloured beanie hat.

If you see any suspicious or worrying activity, please report it to the police using any of the methods listed at the end of this report. (Ref CC-06042019-0268)

Warboys Road / Fen Road, Pidley – Police searched farmland off Warboys Road and Fen Road, Pidley, in the early hours of Thursday 11th April, following a report of two suspicious males seen being dropped off from a van, and a second report of two males seen loitering around construction equipment on a building site. However, officers found nothing untoward and no sign of the two males. (Refs CC-10042019-0533 and CC-10042019-0535)
