Bottesford NHW Alert: Attempted Burglary in Muston / Missing Cat / Thefts from Motor Vehicles in Harby / More Thefts of Heating Oil and Diesel in Surrounding Areas / Suspicious Vehicle

Attempted Burglary in Muston
Burglars attempted to enter a property in Muston last week but took off when they were disturbed by neighbours. Please be aware that burglars may be operating in our area again and be extra vigilant. Please report any suspicious activity to the police.
Missing Cat
young tabby cat has gone missing in the Easthorpe Rd area of Bottesford again. She is long haired with a very bushy tail. She recently returned to her owners hungry and distressed after several days absence but has disappeared again. Please check outbuildings and garages that have been open that may have been open and report any possible sightings to NHW.

Thefts from Motor Vehicles in Harby


Leicestershire police have notified NHW that there have recently been two thefts from motor vehicles in Harby.The incidents occurred  in the village hall car park and on School Lane. Items taken were mainly tools taken from works vans etc.

The following advice is from the Leicestershire police website:

  • Leaving items on display in the car, for example, handbags, jackets, laptops and mobile phones, are an appealing target for thieves. Take them with you, or put them out of view whenever possible. Always remove your car stereo if you can.
  • Make sure that doors are locked, windows are closed and keys are removed from the ignition when you leave the car even if it’s only for a moment. On icy mornings, never leave your vehicle unattended with the engine running.

  • All car equipment - whether you can remove it or not - should be permanently marked, in a visible place, with the vehicle’s registration number or another unique identifying number linked to a recognised database. e.g Immobilise

  • If you have a garage, use it. Always lock your car and garage. Remove satellite navigation devices where possible, including the support cradle and cables. Wipe away any suction pad marks left on the windscreen or dashboard.

More Thefts of Heating Oil and Diesel in Surrounding Areas

Over a 7 day period last week Nottinghamshire Police received 2 reports of heating oil stolen from storage tanks and 2 reports of diesel being stolen from tractors in surrounding areas. Clearly this is a time of increased risk and residents are advised to be extra vigilant and where possible take extra security precautions.

Suspicious Vehicle

Two males with Lincolnshire accents driving a vehicle (reg K696 JMA) have been reported acting suspiciously around stables in the Hose area. Please keep an eye out for this vehicle and report any suspicious activity to the police.
