Neighbourhood Watch Newsletter - Kisle News March 2011

Village news - The number of crimes in our Village has increased recently. And we have had in the early part of March a number of Vandalism incidents, culminating with the disturbance at the Playing Fields on Friday March 11th, to which the Police were called, but which also resulted in other Vandalism incidents in the Village. The next night Eggs were thrown at the front of the Olde Red Lion Pub, which is stupid behaviour, but takes a lot of effort to clean up. I have also heard of an attempted break-in in Millers Close. This does not appear on the February Crime Report so I can only assume that it was not reported to the Police. There was an attempted break-in to a house in Mill lane in early March, not reported to the Police, and on the same night I understand that there was an attempt to break-in to a house in Mill Road. A suspicious vehicle was seen in The Orchard and a Street Representative there challenged the occupants who then left. This was reported to the Police.
From the Monthly Police Crime Report:
Kislingbury – Wrights Lane. Burglary in a Dwelling between the hours of 1930 and 1955 on 28th Feb 2011. Person[s] gain entry to premises via rear insecure window.

It is very important to tell the Police that an incident is happening, or as soon after as you can. If we do not tell them, and the thieves see no Police response, they will conclude that Kislingbury is easy pickings and come back again. The Police do not mind getting calls. More importantly they need the calls to help them fight Crime. Please use 999 for Emergencies or the number 01604 432 436 to report what you see immediately, or call me on 07855 388 751, if you want to report a crime or something or somebody suspicious.
