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

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

The team started the set of strong this week with the recovery of a cloned van. The vehicle which had been parked up in a quiet residential road had been left at the location for a number of days after being dropped off in the early hours of the morning. The persons who had left the location had made attempts to clone the vehicle but the number plate they used was not for a van instead it was for a BMW saloon car. Officers attended the location and conducted checks on the vehicle. The vehicle identification number (VIN) had been deliberately hidden. This along with the attempt to hide the vehicles true identity with a false plate allowed officers to seize the vehicle as cloned/suspected stolen. Once with our recovery agents attempts will be made to identify the vehicles correct identity and we will be able to ascertain if the vehicle is stolen or not. 

Sticking with the seizure of vehicles two of our officers stopped a male on Thursday after he was seen to drive off at speed. Once the officers had conducted checks on the vehicle they were able to ascertain that the driver had no driving licence and no insurance for the vehicle. The vehicle itself had no MOT since September 2023 (9 months!). The vehicle was seized from the male and he will be dealt with for the motoring offences.
