We have had one burglary this week. It occurred on 09/09/2019 between 1900 & 2045 hours on The Grove. Suspect(s) have entered an unlocked porch and then used a tool to force the front door open which was only on a yale lock. Untidy search of upstairs rooms, cash stolen.
There has been a fair amount of motor vehicle crime on the ward this week. On 05/05/2019 between 1700 & 1900 hours a moped was stolen from St James Way by three males. It was found and recovered by police in Swanley two days later.
Between 03/09/2019 & 05/09/2019 windscreen wipers were stolen from a BMW 4 series while it was parked on Hurst Rd.
On 10/09/2019 at 2300 hours a white male in his teens wearing a red hoody was seen to be rummaging through a car on Upton Road South. When he realised he had been seen he made off towards Hartford Rd with some bank cards and two pairs of glasses from the car.
Between 1800 hours on 10/09/2019 & 0700 hours on 11/09/2019 a vehicle parked on The spinney was broken in to. Suspect carried out an untidy search of the vehicle. Unknown if anything was stolen.
On 11/09/2019 at 1300 hours a catalytic converter was stolen from a vehicle parked in the car park at the Holiday Inn, Black prince.
This week we have recovered two stolen vehicles, a white van from Palm Avenue and a blue Focus which was found at Rebecca Court in Sidcup. We also assisted Sidcup SNT this week with a search and containment in relation to a disqualified driver who fled the scene after he crashed the BMW he was driving in Landsdowne Road. He is still outstanding unfortunately.
In the past week we have been made aware of two suspicious vehicles to keep an eye out for. A black BMW X5 displaying CX08SXV was seen in suspicious circumstances paying close attention to vans parked in The Grove last week. When a resident tried to confront the driver the car sped off. Please note that the registration plates have been stolen from the same style of vehicle which is registered locally.
Also look out for a blue 63 plate Kia Sportage towing a trailer. Two males in this vehicle were seen to be trying to gain access to the rear of a house in Hill Crescent last week on the pretence of trimming hedges. The occupants of the house were not home at the time and it has been confirmed that no permission had been given for any work to be carried out. Due to the vigilance of neighbours these two males were deterred from potentially breaking in to the house.
PCSO Dee will be teaming up with Sidcup SNT's PCSO Steve again at Lidl, Footscray High Street on Saturday 21/09/2019 from 1100 -1300 hours where they will be holding a crime prevention event. They hope to see you there!
