Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good Afternoon, Somersham District Members –
Before we get to our weekly Policing Summary, here is just a reminder again how important it is that we all stay home this Bank Holiday weekend, despite the good weather.
Please stay home …
….. except for your one exercise session or to pick up essentials. Enjoy the sunshine from the comfort of your garden or from inside with the windows open.
Police have received a few reports of groups of people apparently ignoring the social-distancing regulations, and have attended and given words of advice where necessary, but overall, feedback from patrols is that people are overwhelmingly abiding by the rules, staying at home and only going out when it is essential. Thank you to everyone for doing this – you are actively helping to save lives.
Now to our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, covering the period 4th to 10th April:
Grange Road, Somersham – Police seized and towed away a silver Audi car found on Grange Road, Somersham, in the early hours of Saturday 4th April, when checks showed that the driver had no valid licence. (Ref CC-04042020-0044)
Chatteris Road, Somersham – Four males in a grey Nissan four-by-four were interrupted attempting to steal fuel from a pump in the yard of a transport company on Chatteris Road, Somersham, on Saturday evening, 4th April. One of the four had picked up the pump nozzle, but put it back and drove off when staff realised what was happening. (Ref 35/23395/20)
St Ives Road, Somersham – Thieves stole a workman’s jacket containing a set of keys, and used them to enter his car and take several other items whilst it was parked outside an address on St Ives Road, Somersham, on Sunday evening, 5th April.

Parkhall Road, Somersham – Thieves stole a black Range Rover from outside an address on Parkhall Road, Somersham, at some time between Friday 3rd and Monday 6th April. The vehicle has a keyless entry system but it is not known if this is how the thieves managed to take it. (Ref 35/23679/20)
