Ramsey sentenced for theft and shoplifting

This was a good result for the force and local shops, who are both pleased to have put away one of our most prolific offenders.




Arrests of two males for drug and driving offences leads to discovery of offensive weapons
Yesterday evening, two males aged 17 and 20 from Bexhill were searched and arrested for drug and driving offences following a proactive stop of an Audi vehicle in the St Leonard’s area.

Searches of their home addresses lead to the discovery of more drugs and over 30 offensive weapons. 

Despite the current impact of the Coronavirus, we remain motivated and committed to catching criminals and keeping people safe. These weapons were seriously dangerous and posed a significant risk to the public.

Action Fraud scam watch
Did you know scams cost the UK economy £5-£10 Billion a year, with over 50% of people over 65 having already been targeted by scams; and only 5% of all scams reported?

This week’s scam and fraud warnings from Action Fraud:
  • There was a 400% increase in coronavirus-related scams in March, with victim losses totalling almost £970,000. Here are some examples of Coronavirus-related phishing messages we’ve had reported to us.
         
  • ‪As more people work from home due to COVID19, fraudsters may capitalise on slow networks and IT problems, to commit computer software service fraud. Be wary of cold calls or unsolicited emails offering you help with your device or to fix a problem.
