Earlsdon Weekly Police Update

Here’s a quick round up from me of the Willenhall/Binley, Cheylesmore & Earlsdon Neighbourhood Team 


What’s been happening in Earlsdon


Motor Vehicle Offences.  


27/11/2023 at 10.30 am a Theft from motor vehicle at Sainsburys Fletchamstead Highway .

Tools were stolen from a van whilst the owners were shopping in Sainsburys ,someone has broken the lock on the side door via what looks like a screwdriver and stole tools out of the back of the van.


02/12/2023 Theft from motor vehicle at The Village Hotel and Leisure Centre.

The front headlights and grill were stolen off a Landrover Defender which was parked in the car park at The Village Hotel and Leisure Centre.


Current intelligence suggests the offenders are using a Black Focus with 2008 and 2009 number plates.


·         You can use anti-theft screws on number plates to prevent them from being taken.

·         Remove all belongings from your vehicles including small change.

·         Keep your car keys in a faraday pouch these prevent the signal being exploited

·         You could also consider using a disk lock or crook lock these are visual deterrents.


Drug dealing


We have had some  reports of drug dealing in the area. We are continuing to try to identify the offenders, vehicles and the locations from which they are operating and we are patrolling the areas that have already been identified.


Stop searches of people and vehicles have been conducted in the area and the team have been successful in finding drugs.  


The team continues to work hard to identify cannabis cultivation and individuals dealing drugs.


Cannabis Cultivation is a major issue in the UK. The equipment to set up a farm is readily available and the operations that we have seen have gotten more and more sophisticated.

Many times we have spoken to members of the public who have indicated to us that they may know where a cannabis farm is but that they did not want to report it for fear of repercussions.

We would like to reassure our residents that the source of information given to the police is never disclosed to any other agencies or persons. The most typical way in which such information is managed is that upon receipt of information from a member of the public - such as a smell of cannabis or strange comings and goings - is that officers from the local team will make their own enquiries and record their findings, and this will be the basis for a warrant application.


If you have any information that you think may help us, please report via 101 or webchat. Or alternatively email us on binleyandwillenhall@westmidlands.pnn.police.uk


All Intelligence given to us is strictly confidential is not shared with any other parties.




Thank you for all your continued support.
