Update for Hamiton

Alert message sent 13/08/2019 17:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear All,
I thought that I would take this opportunity to send you a brief email about what has been happening on the Humberstone, Hamilton and Netherhall ward.
In recent weeks we’ve had a few burglaries, mainly in the Hamilton estate targeting asian occupants.  The perpetrators are using stolen vehicles or vehicles on clones plates which makes it difficult to track them, late in the evening or in the early hours of the morning. The common modus operandi is to force entry from the rear and ransack the house or once the door has been opened they force themselves in, looking for the cash safe and jewellery. The beat team are doing some high visibility patrols at key times and also ensuring occupants are educated regarding personal safety etc.
There have been a slight increase in theft of motor vehicles where the culprits are targeting high performance vehicle using a device to “steal the signal” from the key which is in the house and then steal the car, leaving the owner confused. I have secured signal blockers from the city council and my team will be out soon to issue them.
We are aware that numerous people have raised issues around parking, speeding vehicles, ignoring one way sign etc in Humberstone Village. As a result of this we conducted two days of action and issued tickets for the following:
SPEEDING                          7
NO INSURANCE                 2
MOBILE PHONES              1
SEAT BELTS                      1
ILLEGAL VRM                    3
A lock knife was also recovered from a vehicle and a suspect interviewed.    
On a positive note a male who was wanted for numerous burglaries force wide and recall to prison was arrested by our proactive team from Humberstone village and is currently in prison.
