The neighbourhood team is continuing to focus on village primary schools after requests to support the issue of parents parking on yellow zigzags. Please remember that the zigzags are there for one reason only - to protect your children as they enter and leave the school grounds. Please try be grateful that they are there, not annoyed that you might have to walk a little further.
Lots of results this month and too many to list, so here's a selection of the crime news:
A year 17 old male was issued a Section 59 Warning for riding his off-road motorbike in a field in Caversfield. These warnings are issued when a person rides in a careless or inconsiderate manner and in a place other than a road without lawful authority in a manner which is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to members of the public.
After several crimes being reported in the Chesterton area, including 2 burglaries, 4 people have been arrested and have been released on police bail whilst further enquires are made.
A Theft Act search warrant was executed at an address in Caversfield in relation to shed and garage burglaries and a large amount of property has been recovered. A male occupant from the address is currently on police bail in relation to this. We are in the process of identifying the owners of the property - if you haven't reported your crime where shed or garage contents were stolen, please do so - we'd love to return all of the items to their rightful owners.
WPC Brown dealt with a male shoplifter from Kidlington who was charged with one offence and had 3 others taken into consideration.

The most effective method of prevention is defensive parking - close up against a fence or hedge or even another car to reduce access to the cat side of the vehicle.
