Good Afternoon, Somersham District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 21st to 27th February:
St Ives Road, Somersham – There was a break-in at a house on St Ives Road, Somersham, at some time around the middle of the day on Monday 24th February. Intruders entered by smashing the glass in a side door, then carried out an untidy search before leaving. Neighbours were alerted by noticing unusual circumstances and raised the alarm, and it is thought that the intruders were disturbed and fled, escaping through a rear window. Police are following up reports of suspicious persons seen in the area and investigations are continuing. (Ref 35/13990/20)
St Ives Road, Somersham – Police received a report of a suspicious incident at a house on St Ives Road, Somersham, that happened just after midnight early on Thursday morning 27th February, recorded on a doorbell CCTV system. Cameras recorded pictures of two males with hats and scarves around their faces and carrying torches walking up to the front door, peering through the glass and shining a light through the window. They then moved to the back of the house and peered through rear windows before leaving the back garden by jumping over a wall and driving off in a silver four-by-four vehicle. (Ref CC-27022020-0105)
