Alert message sent 26/08/2021 11:15:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


Unfortunately we have seen a sharp rise recently in crimes being committed in our rural areas, including rural thefts and burglary other than dwellings.

The offenders are targeting remote locations, looking to break into outbuildings, isolated business premises, as well as targeting diggers, tractors and other plant machinery.

We believe that the primary suspects may be scouting farms and other rural businesses during daylight before returning after dark, therefore please make sure you are reporting information to us.

Investigations are still ongoing with our CID (Criminal Investigation Department), and officers are conducting extra patrols in rural locations all over Melton and Rutland, during the night and daytime.

Please consider reviewing your security and our online crime prevention advice online via the link below:


If you see anything out of the ordinary, anything suspicious or that doesn’t feel right, day or night, especially vehicles and any details about that specific vehicle, such as the registrations- then please report it to the Police by calling 101. No matter how small it might seem, it might be vital information that could help us with our investigations.

Please do not hesitate to phone 999 if suspects are on scene, or in any emergency.

If it is not an emergency, you can also provide information to us online via our website:


Thankfully, these types of crimes are rare in Melton and Rutland. Please help us to keep it that way through reporting crimes, reporting suspicious activity and reviewing your security – thank you.

Thank you for your on-going support.
