The following details emerged in a Police Report that was submitted and considered at last night's Nettleham Parish Council Meeting, it give details of occurrences in Nettleham between Monday, 14th December 2009 to Wednesday, 13th January 2010.
Between the dates the Police had three crimes and twenty-six incidents reported to them. The most significant and relvant to the Parish Council was:
Monday, 28th December 2009 – A vehicle was stopped on A46 at Nettleham for a minor traffic offence, whilst being dealt with by the Officer, cannabis was discovered in the vehicle. The driver was dealt with for the offences. The driver is not local to Nettleham.
The incidents highlighted to the parish council were as follows:
Tuesday, 15th December and Saturday, 19th December 2009 – Three incidents were reported related to concern for welfare of elderly persons. They were all checked and all was in order. It does serve as a reminder to encourage people to check on elderly neighbours in the village that may just appreciate a visit during the cold, long nights.
Tuesday, 15th December 2009 – A large safe was found on Sudbrooke Lane, it is believed that it had been stolen from a care home in or around the Lincoln area the same night. A Scenes of Crime Officer collected the safe and enquiries are on going to link it back to a premise.
Monday, 4th January 2010 – In the early evening a suspicious incident was reported on Church View. A male was seen in the callers rear garden trying shed doors, when the male realised he was being watched, he pulled his cap down and left.
Six of the incidents during this time period were road traffic collisions, predominately due to the road conditions. Again another reminder on how important it is at this time of year to allow extra time for journeys, to remember good vehicle maintenance, to fully defrost your vehicle before driving off in the morning.
There was only only incident at Mulsanne Park during this period, this involved a vehicle performing hand brake turns in the car park late at night. Unfortunately when police arrived the vehicle had already left the village.
All other incidents are of a personal or police nature and not of public concern
