POLICE REPORT 14th JUNE- 11th JULY 2017
Update on Policing matters in the Town during the above period.
I wish to update you on Policing matters in the Town over the past month.
84 incidents were recorded. 18 of these concerned the A38. Another 4 were in the Town and surrounding area.
No incidents of anti-social behaviour were reported.
23 crimes were recorded. These included -
5 offences of common assault
3 crimes of criminal damage
6 thefts from motor vehicles - these have primarily been to Ford Transit vans, tools and equipment being stolen.
1 burglary was recorded - a break-in at St Andrews Church on 3rd July. This is linked to similar offences elsewhere in Devon and enquiries are continuing.
A male was arrested for drink driving close at Peartree on 17th June.
A 25yr old male from Roborough Terrace was sentenced to 15 weeks imprisonment at Torquay Magistrates Court on 23rd June. This was following his conviction for criminal damage offences in the Town centre earlier in the year. I am still pursuing a Criminal Behaviour Order against this male in an effort to further protect residents.
I'm sure that you are aware that PCSO Robbie Mangham has now left us to begin training to be a Police Officer. He will initially be based at HQ Exeter and then Totnes. He was an asset to the Town and enjoyed working here. I wish him all the best in the next stage of his career.
PC 4486 Dudley
