Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary

Good Afternoon, Somersham District Members –

Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 28th February to 5th March:

Warboys Road, Pidley – Over two consecutive nights, Sunday and Monday, 1st and 2nd March, unknown persons caused damage by dragging wheelie bins along the road behind cars in Pidley. On the Monday evening, the gates of a house on Warboys Road were impacted by a bin, causing significant and costly damage. Police received a report of a similar incident in Warboys the same evening, and hope that CCTV will help in the investigation. (Ref 35/16005/20)

High Street, Somersham – Police responded to a report of a group of teenagers heard trespassing and entering a shed behind a property on Somersham High Street, on Tuesday evening, 3rd March. When officers arrived, some youths were found inside the shed, but no damage had been caused and the shed had been left unlocked so it had not been broken into. After taking their details, officers sent the teenagers home. (Ref CC-03032020-0462)

South Street, Woodhurst – Police received a report that a red vehicle had collided with a Honda car whilst it was parked on South Street, Woodhurst, at around 1:00 am early on Wednesday morning, 4th March. The Honda’s owners discovered the damage at 7:00 am and saw that a damaged red car was parked further down the road with the driver inside asleep. When officers arrived, the driver denied responsibility for the damage but when a search of his car was carried out, drugs and associated paraphernalia were found. A roadside drugs-test on the driver returned positive results for cannabis and cocaine, and he was arrested and the car towed away. (Ref 35/16254/20)
