BURGLARYNone this week – which is really good news.
CRIME PREVENTION Unfortunately, the heft of lead flashing seems to be on the rise again (see Page One story) and there was one incident this week at Hinchcliffe mills where lead was stolen. There are a number of ways you can prevent/make it harder for thieves to steal/sell the lead and that is by using a special paint which makes the smelting of the lead more difficult and unattractive to scrap yards who take the lead in. This can be bought at any good local DIY business.
VEHICLE CRIME Unfortunately we have had in total 23 vehicles that have had their tyres slashed with what appears to be a screwdriver. These occurred on Taylor Street, Station Road and adjoining streets. At Titanic Mills a number of vehicles also had their tyres slashed. All offences occurred overnight. It appears to be completely random attacks.We will be stepping up our patrols in the area and making follow up enquiries into who is responsible. If anyone has any information as to who it could be please contact us at the Valleys NPT on tel 01484 436855.
