Good Afternoon, Fenstanton District Members –

Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 11th to 18th June:

The Lakes Business Park, Fenstanton – Police are investigating a break-in and burglary at a unit on The Lakes Business Park that happened in the early hours of Saturday morning, 12th June. When an alarm started sounding, three or four hooded suspects dressed in black were seen leaving the unit, carrying several boxes of tools to a waiting car and then driving off. Police hope that CCTV footage will help in the investigation. (Ref 35/36638/21)

Headlands, Fenstanton – On Tuesday evening, 15th June, police received a call reporting an on-going problem with youths not wearing helmets and riding a moped across a park near Headlands, on most evenings. The incident has been passed to the Neighbourhood Policing Team for patrols in the area to be aware. (Ref CC-15062021-0478)

Police Appeal For Witnesses:
Police are appealing for information following a fatal collision between two cars, a white Ford ranger and a grey Citroen DS3, on the B1123 near Bluntisham at around 3:45 pm on Tuesday 15th June. Very sadly, one person died in the incident.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or may have dash-cam footage, or who saw the vehicles in the moments before the incident, is asked to contact the police using any of the methods listed at the end of this report, quoting Incident Number 334 of 15 June.

And Finally … New Police Direct Entry Recruitment Programme

Cambridgeshire Police have just launched a new programme to recruit people to train for the role of Detective Constable, within an initial two-year probation period. This accelerated career path will see new recruits working alongside experienced detectives on a variety of different investigations, learning the role of ‘Officer in the Case’ (OIC).

Full details of the recruitment scheme are on the police web-site at the following link:

11 June 2021 – Weekly Police Report – Fenstanton District

Good Afternoon, Fenstanton District Members –

Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 5th to 10th June:

Low Road – Police and an ambulance were called to an incident at a leisure complex on Low Road on Monday evening where a car had collided with a golf buggy. One person was taken to hospital but is not thought to have been seriously hurt in the incident. (Ref CC-07062021-0535)

An Item Of Local News From The Police Web-Site:

A St Ives man was sentenced to 2 years and 4 months in jail at Peterborough Crown Court last Friday, 4th June, after pleading guilty to attempting to incite a girl aged 13 to 15 to engage in sexual activity at an earlier hearing.

The man had used an on-line messaging app to contact what he thought was a 13-year-old girl, although it was in fact an under-cover police officer.

More details are on the police web-site at:

And Finally … Census Text Scam

A Somersham Ecops subscriber contacted me this week to let me know about a scam text he has received about the recent UK national Census.

The text reads as follows: “CENSUS: There is missing information from your Census application. Update your application – visit …” – followed by a suspicious web-address.

The text may go on to threaten you with a fine if you do not comply.

This kind of text is most definitely a scam, and you should NOT click on the link to the web-address in the text message. The government will not issue a fine so long as you have sent in your Census form.

The Census Office has issued the following information about this kind of scam:

“We will not contact you via a text message, email or phone call asking for your details or regarding a fine …. Please do not engage or respond to these messages and do not click on any links provided … If you wish to report the scam to us, you can send us a message using our web-form, providing as much detail as possible.”

More details are on the Census Office web-page at:
https://census.gov.uk/your-data-and-security/how-we-will-contact-or-visit-you

You can also send any suspicious text message that you may receive to the National Cyber Security Centre by simply forwarding it to 7726. This is a free service and enables your Internet Service Provider to investigate.

My thanks to the Ecops subscriber for sending me the details of this scam.
