Neighbourhood Watch News

From Neighbourhood Watch Office Chairman Dana Wiffen, 
Thank you to the Bexley Village Trader for letting us know that there is now a Post Office in Bexley Village again, this is something that had escaped me and I have been using the Crayford one. 7 Months after its closure in what was Martins Newsagents, it has finally re-opened further along the High Street last month in Bexley Village at number 26 Bexley High Street - Costcutters.

We have had one burglary on the ward this week. On Friday 29/03/2019 between 1900 & 2215 hours unknown suspect forced the rear window in a house on Dartford Road. Two belts, jewellery, a watch and both English and foreign cash were stolen. No forensic evidence left at the scene - confirmed suspect wearing gloves.
There have been three motor vehicle crimes this week. A vehicle was broken in to overnight on Tuesday 26/03/2019 sometime between 1800 hours and 0850 hours on 27/03/2019 while parked on Davis Way. A passport was stolen from the vehicle. On Wednesday 27/03/2019 between 1000 hours & 1330 hours a van which was parked in the car park behind The George pub had the locks drilled out and tools were stolen from the back & a vehicle parked in the car park at the Holiday Inn, Black Prince Interchange overnight on Wednesday 27/03/2019 had the catalytic converter stolen. CCTV enquiries are ongoing to try and identify the suspect. Yesterday we were on the lookout for a black Audi A6 estate with a group of males inside that were driving around the Sidcup & Eltham area & stealing tools from vans. If you see this vehicle call police immediately.
Wednesday 27/03/2019 we were involved in a joint operation with Kent Police, traffic police and South East tasking team on Maidstone Road & A20 with the intention of disrupting criminals using these routes to travel between both policing areas to commit crime. A male who had been wanted for some time was arrested and drivers were dealt with for speeding and no insurance offences.
We also had our second crime prevention event at the Holiday Inn on Saturday 30/03/2019, thank you to those that attended. We hope to do another one of these events in the summer.
Over the past week we have also been busy with gathering CCTV and witness statements for the burglary that happened in St James Way last week which has enabled us to identify a suspect for this & we will be dealing with him.
This weekend we will be back out delivering Smart Water.
