Hello everyone, over the last three weeks we’ve had six burglaries, two in Mozeley Avenue, two in Albert Road, one at the Jolly Punter and most recently on Vauxhall Road.
The Vauxhall Rd burglary involved belongings taken from two French tourists over here for the Rugby World Cup. They had arrived the previous day and while moving into a ‘sleep out’, their travel bags which contained passports, cash, cell phones and laptops were taken. Police realise the importance of catching those responsible for this crime as well as the others. If anyone knows anything or finds property similar to what I’ve just mentioned, please get in touch.
You may have noticed an increased police presence in Devonport over the last few weeks. This is a result of three offenders who have been bailed to addresses in the area. These guys are on strict bail conditions so we are keeping a close eye on them by checking them throughout the day and night, so just a reminder to be extra vigilant throughout the day and night. If you see someone suspicious, don’t wait till later on to call, do it straight away, and it is 111 not the local number.
Finally, it is time for me to move on. I have enjoyed my six years as the Devonport/Bayswater Community Constable and have gained valuable experience and many friends. So it is time for me to hand over to someone else. Constable Daniel Glasgow will take over the reigns in early September and will look forward to introducing himself once settled.
Goodbye and take care Devonport.
From Community Constable STEVE O’REILLY
