Capel St Mary Crime Review 3/2/24 – 24/4/24

The fair weather inevitably (and unfortunately) brings with it a change in crime trends. Within this period there have been a variety of crimes in Capel St Mary, these have included the following (in no particular order) :- 2x Theft from motor vehicles, a business burglary, a make-off without payment, dangerous dog out-of-control offence, harassment and stalking offences, a supply class B cannabis offence, criminal damage and a public order offence.

Police have also dealt with other non-crime incidents such as anti-social behaviour reports, domestic matters, and also other incidents which resulted in adult and child referrals to partner agencies. Please bear in mind these are crimes that have occurred over a period of over two and a half months.

Due to a few reports of anti-social behaviour issues in Capel recently, I have begun some evening foot patrols. My colleagues on the response investigation team who are on 24/7 have also adopted some of these patrols as well.

If you experience any anti-social behaviour, please report it to both the police via the Suffolk Police website (or 999 in an emergency) and the council. It is important to report to both as we work together and the most appropriate service leads.

My next pre-arranged public engagement will be based at Capel St Mary Library, I will be there on 15 May between 9.30am-12midday. Come along if you want any police-related advice or wish to report any ongoing issues.

Kind regards,

PC 1293 Niall Johnson – Hadleigh Community Police Officer.
