An informant stopped 3 males stealing a bike from the side of his property. He challenged them and gave the bike back. With reference to the increase of recent burglaries we have experienced in our area please see some prevention advice below. Ensure that your perimeter fences/ hedges are in a good state of repair. The recommended height for rear boundaries is 1.8m (6ft); you can also use trellis to increase the height of existing fences or walls. Use thorny shrubs as barriers and to fill in gaps in hedges. Plant prickly/ thorny shrubs along the bottom of fences or walls to increase security. Garden gates should be the same height and as strong as your fence or wall, fit strong locks to gates such as a padlock or press bolt on the inside of the gate. Any bushes or shrubs in a front garden need to be well maintained and kept below 1m in height to allow for natural surveillance. Donít leave tools out in the garden; they may be used to break into your home. Keep them locked in a shed, garage or outside store. Bring tools inside if you do not have a garden shed or outbuilding. Ladders should be locked away or securely chained and padlocked to a strong post or wall. Install outside security lighting which will come on automatically. Consider using gravel for paths on driveways and under windows and doors as it is loud underfoot. If you have a burglar alarm fitted why not extend it to cover outbuildings and sheds? Take photographs of valuable items such as statues/ ornaments. Secure garden furniture using anchoring devices. These can also be used to protect items such as ornamental trees. Consider using a property coding or registration system, such as Immobilise which is a free online system. It is also useful to use visible marks such as tamper proof labels with your postcode, or a paint pen for large items, to deter potential thieves. Check that your household insurance policy covers theft from your garden and outbuildings. If you wish to report a crime any other crime, suspicious behavior or activity please ring our non-emergency number which is 101. If you believe that a crime is in progress please ring 999.

Fishy Business
Written by Rob Gordon   
Thursday, 17 April 2014
There has been a report of door to door fish sellers visiting Edinburgh Avenue, Sawston at approximately 5pm last night, 16/04/2014. There were three males aged between 25-35yrs with very short/or shaved hair, with tattoos, wearing black shirts. They appeared to be using a red Renault Megane vehicle, the company name given was BB Fish Supplies. The concern is due the way the fish are sold: The sellers do not use refrigerated vehicles, the 'salespersons' do not have I.D. and householders are encouraged to pay cash (around £100 per fish(?sic "order"? Ed)) for a food item about which they know very little i.e. where has it come from? How old is it? Use by date? As a rule the householder is encouraged to put the fish in the freezer straight away, meaning once they take it out to cook it, if there is anything wrong the fish seller is long gone. Please do not be tempted into buying these goods, and pass on the warning message. Any information call 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 Rachel Carr Crime Reduction Officer
