Issue: – Vehicle Crime – Bishop Burton and surrounding area
A male youth was interviewed in relation to the thefts of Land rover Defenders from the Beverley Rural area.
The Community Policing team are looking at launching a property marking scheme, specifically for Land rover, Defenders.
These vehicles are predominantly stolen to then be broken up and the parts sold on. The scheme would see all parts of the vehicle marked with a forensic DNA paste, thus making the parts traceable.

4. Offenders brought to justice
A male was charged with assaulting another male in Tickton.
A male youth has been arrested on suspicion of theft of a Dirt bike stolen from Leven.
5. News and Appeals
Over the last month a number of crimes have been thefts from insecure outbuildings whereby offenders have approached and stolen power tools and similar items from within. In an attempt to decrease crimes of this nature taking place we advise people to lock away all items securely in a bid to deter offenders from committing crimes to begin with.
Allotments have been targeted throughout the division, with many thefts. These offences invariably occur during the night, and we would ask that people living near allotments ring the police should they see suspicious people or vehicles in the areas.
Please also consider what you leave in your shed on the allotment or at home. High value items such as power drills or chain saws should be made more secure. We would encourage small allotment watch schemes similar to neighbourhood watch to be formed and should you be interested, then please contact the neighbourhood team
Residents are reminded to secure all windows and doors, especially if they have been opened during daylight hours in the hot weather. Opportune criminals will take advantage of windows left open and doors left unlocked.
Please contact your Community Policing Team, Tel: 01964 530320 if you require advice on Farm Watch, CESAR, Neighbourhood Watch, “Keep your Farm Safe” leaflets, or general crime prevention advice. We are happy to visit at a time convenient to you.
If you are interested in the property marking scheme for Land rover Defender vehicles, contact PC 1805 Turrell on the above telephone number, alternatively email your details and someone will get back to you; firstname.lastname@example.org uk
