Suspicious male in the area

Alert message sent 17/06/2020 12:57:00

Information sent on behalf of Humberside Police

A crime has been reported in your neighbourhood

Good Afternoon I monitor your group on Facebook and have seen posts about persons acting suspicious in the area. It appears to be a unknown person targeting the location around Silverdale, Riversdale and Strathmore area trying car doors and walking down driveways checking out outbuildings.

I have checked the police systems and can confirm that from the 1st June there has been 1 Garage Burglary and 1 Attempt burglary in the area. There has been 1 theft of motor vehicle and 1 attempt theft of a motor vehicle where a male was arrested. 

The neighbourhood team will up our presence in the area and I have asked the night patrols to pay attention to the area.

I am sure that some suspicious activity is not been reported to police in the area, can you please call any suspicious activity to the Police on 999 and report any crimes that occur. We have a great chance of catching those involved if it is reported at the time.

Vehicles .

Don’t make it easy for thieves. Make sure you lock your car doors and windows every time you leave it.

.-Secure your car registration documents at home, never leave them in your car.

-Think about where you’re parking. Use a well-lit, secure car park.

-Don’t leave anything on show – CDs, cheque books, even an old coat on show inside as they may be tempting for thieves.

-With satnavs in particular, make sure you remove the device from view including its cradle.

-Consider investing and using an alarm as a deterrent.

Shed and Garages 
- Make sure sheds and garages have good quality lock and hinges.

- Consider fitting deterrents in the garden like movement sensitive floodlights as these will leave thieves feeling exposed. Likewise alarms on sheds and garages will deter thieves as they would not want to be spotted in out buildings taking property.

- Garden tools, DIY equipment and leisure items such as fishing and golf equipment should be locked away in storage cupboards within outbuildings to form a second line of defence to thieves. 

- Motorbike and pedal cycles should also be locked even when they are in a shed or garage.

-To assist the police in recovering and returning stolen property, people should register valuables onto Cycles, golf and fishing equipment and tools can be easily added onto the property register and then this assists the force in identifying property as stolen/lost, bring offenders to justice and stop the items being sold via second hand stores. The system can also allow owners to upload pictures of unique items.
