Here is your quick round up from me and the rest of the Holbrooks neighbourhood policing team.

Dear Resident,
Here is your quick round up from me and the rest of the Holbrooks neighbourhood policing team.
What’s been happening?

This week has been a busy one. We started the week with a cannabis factory. Originally called in by a member of the public as a burglary of an address it was discovered on officer’s attendance that the property has been converted into a cannabis factory with three rooms within the property and the whole loft converted to be used in the cultivation of cannabis. Our team along with some of our colleagues from the north sector attended the location and dismantled the setup. A total of two hundred+ fully grown plants were recovered from the address filling seventeen large bags.

Officers on the team interviewed and charged a prolific shoplifter with twenty-five offences this week after the male was arrested at the start of the set. The male who has been shoplifting from a number of stores on a regular basis was stopped by security at a local store before officers attended and arrested the male. 

We have recovered five Stolen motorcycles this week following reports from the public about motorcycles being used or left in locations across our ward. At the start of the week three motorcycles were all recovered in the same place after a resident had reported seeing them stored in a communal shed at a block of flats. Officers attended and conducted checks on the motorcycles which showed all to be stolen. The motorcycles were recovered. Then on Sunday a further two were recovered by our PCSOs. One was recovered in the car park of a black of flats after a resident had noticed a group of males trying to cover the motorcycle. the vehicle was confirmed stolen and recovered. The final motorcycle was recovered from a local woodland after a report from a member of the public who had seen it when walking their dog. The motorcycle was located and confirmed stolen before it then had to be dragged out of the woodland with the help of out recovery agent.
