MONTHLY REPORT Sedlescombe  January 2007



Shed Breaks


A series of shed and attempted shed breaks were reported throughout Sedlescombe in January. It is believed that they were carried out on the weekend of the Friday  5th and Satuarday 6th but some were not reported till the later due to the sheds not being in constant use. Most Breaks failed due to the security locks and alarms.

At present there are no lines of enquiry and House to House failed to bring any new evidence or suspects. PCSO Kemp and myself visited the victims of crime to reassurance and crime prevention advice.


House Burglary


Two house’s on the main road were broken into and One of the house’s a few items were stolen, house to house enquires were made with a negative result scene of crime attended. Enquiries continue.

The other house only one item were taken and house to house also negative result. The incidents appears to be linked. Sarah o’shaughnessy and myself visited the victims of crime to reassurance and crime prevention advice.




A stop check in Sedlescombe resulted in a caution for possession controlled substance.




A report of two non road legal motorcycles racing on Hurst lane was reported to police. Police arrived promptly and found the a group of youths with two off road motorbikes. Section 59 warning were given to both youths on the bikes which resulted in one of the motor cycles  being seized under police powers due to the youth already having a section 59 warning. Stop froms were carried out on all present and forwarded to the Antisocial behaviour officer.
