Woodstock Neighbourhood Management Update
Neighbourhood Specialist Officer PC Richard Conner reports on this month's update:
“PCSO Tina Townshend has now joined the team so you will see her out with PCSO Phil Workman getting to know the area. They may even be on their new bikes!
Woodstock and Bladon
“On 1 January the Star Inn had a number of windows broken and a man was subsequently arrested.
“Between 9 and 10 January there was an attempted burglary at the Marlborough School where a kitchen window was smashed.
“Between 11 and 13 January a silver-handled knife was stolen from Antiques of Woodstock.
“Between 12 January at 5pm and 13 January at 11.30am there was a burglary in the Market Square. The front door was forced and cash was stolen.
“Between 29 December and 18 January a bronze horse was stolen from the Iona Galleries.
“A wheelchair was stolen from Market Square and found nearby. This is not a joke to the owner, for whom it is vital piece of equipment so please do not do it again.
“On the 19 January between 10am and 4.30pm bicycles were stolen from a house in Oxford Road; please lock them up and get them postcoded. If you need advice please speak to Phil Workman.
Freeland and Harborough
“In New Road between 12 January at 9am and 13 January at 10.30am, a vehicle was scratched. Did you see anything? If so please pass any information onto Tina.
“20 cans of alcohol were seized from youths in the pavilion play park on 19 January. The alcohol had been purchased for them by an older person. This is an offence and can mean an £80 fixed penalty ticket.
“Between 7 and 8 January, laptops were stolen from the school. Do you have any information? The school does not have the money to replace these items.
“At Lower West Farm between 4pm on 16 January and 11am on 17 January four sheep were killed and four were injured by a dog.
“Tina introduced herself at the school and will get to know the staff and pupils on her patrols.”
Tackley and Brougham
“Between the 10 and 11 January there was damage to the old mailbox in Whitehall and between 25 and 26 January a white hatchback car was damaged in Rousham Road.”
Kiddington, Glympton and Wootton
“Car badges have been stolen in Wootton and plastic chairs were stolen from a garden in Top Lane. If you have information on either of these incidents please speak to Phil.
“The team were in Woodstock on 9 January with the mobile police station trying to recruit members for the Neighbourhood Action Group. This was followed up by an open day at the police station. If you are interested please contact us.
“If you can help us with any of the incidents that have been mentioned in this month’s update please contact the team on 0845 8 505 050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
