Thefts from work vans: June crime report

In June the police received 356 calls from members of the public relating to incidents across the three parishes of Glenfield, LFE and Kirby Muxloe. There were 3 burglaries reported in Glenfield. Although some of the arrests that have been made appears to have reduced the number of burglaries from last month, we would like to remind the public to be vigilant to suspicious behavior and report any to us directly at the time.
However, there were 14 vehicle related crimes reported to the police, and theft from works vans remains a prevalent issue across the beat. Please take action to reduce the possibility of becoming a victim of this behaviour. Remove your tools, park the van up against walls to make access more difficult, alarms, extra locks and CCTV are all options you could use to dissuade criminals from targeting your property. Marking your property helps us to return it to you should it come into our possession.

On Thursday 6th July 2017 several warrants were executed in relation the theft of tools/power tools from vans and vehicles across the force area. A large number of power tools and equipment were seized during the warrants. If you have been subject to a theft from your motor vehicle and had tools stolen then please monitor the Force Website for details of viewing days where they will be able to visit and view recovered property. Ensure that any serial numbers or identifying marks are attributed to your crime report. If you have not reported the theft then please call us and quote incident number 219 - 07/07/17

After seeing this vehicle being driven dangerously in Glenfield whilst conducting speed enforcement patrols, the beat team were able to locate and recover this stolen motor bike, and after a brief chase, arrest the rider for offences relating to it and also drug offences.
A good result also bearing in mind the we still have the continuing issue of motorbikes being ridden around deliberately causing anti-social behaviour to local residents.
