Bottesford NHW Alert: Suspicious Vehicle / Suspicious Charity Collectors / Operation Tiger

Suspicious Vehicle
A Renault People Carrier with several male occupants was reported acting suspiciously in the vicinity of Devon Lane/St Mary's church yesterday morning. The registration plate of the vehicle is something like STU05SD. If spotted again please try to obtain the exact registration and report it to the police. Crime in progress 999, otherwise 101.
Suspicious Charity Collectors

Suspicious "charity workers" have been reported operating in Melton. In two reports they called at homes during the evening - 6:15pm and 9:15pm - which made people suspicious as you wouldn’t expect charity workers to be out that late.

The description on both occasions appears to be one and the same - an IC1 male in his 20’s, stocky build wearing a black beanie hat and a ‘very old’ Cancer Research Jumper. A new Silver Vauxhall Astra was mentioned that might be the vehicle belonging to this male.

Although the police have not yet managed to catch them they have issued an alert so residents are forewarned. Although these reports are arise from Melton it is likely that the perpetrators will spread their activities to other areas unless they are apprehended.

Operation Tiger

Leicestershire Police is launching a fierce new operation that aims to hunt criminals and protect communities as part of an intense period of police activity.

Operation Tiger, which leapt into action earlier this week, aims to protect communities whilst reducing crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland by working together as a team and pulling together all resources. The operation is in response to the Police and Crime Plan as set out by the Police and Crime Commissioner, Sir Clive Loader.

Whilst the aims of the initiative are always an integral part of Leicestershire Police’s duty, this intensive period of activity will see all officers out on the streets tackling ASB, carrying out drugs warrants, recovering stolen property and visiting those who are causing the most harm to communities.

The Force has identified areas, across the Leicestershire Police area, that are subject to varying levels of crime. Across the operation, those areas will be targeted in a bid to prevent offending and re-offending whilst protecting communities and vulnerable people.

Assistant Chief Constable Roger Bannister said: “Throughout this operation we will be pulling together as a Force, but also as a community. Whilst we will do all we can to target those who are causing most harm, we need your help in making sure these people are brought to justice so please speak out if you have any information.

“Residents may start to notice an increase in police presence through our patrols and warrants; however we are advising people to not be worried as we are working hard to protect communities. Our message to offenders is that they have a choice. If they commit a crime, we will catch up with them. Or they could choose to change their life and turn their back on crime. We hope to transfer fear from the community to those that commit the crime.”

The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Sir Clive Loader, is responsible for setting targets for Leicestershire Police through his Police and Crime Plan to ensure the consistent delivery of an efficient and effective police service which meets the needs of the communities of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Sir Clive said: “Much of the policing conducted under Operation Tiger contributes directly to the outcomes laid out in my Police and Crime Plan, ensuring that the Force area of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland is a safe place to live, work and to visit.

“Leicestershire Police has an excellent reputation for tackling the crime and anti-social behaviour that matters most to local people. I want to see the police continuing to drive down crime significantly by focussing on those who cause the most harm in our communities.”

Whilst there will be an initial period of intense enforcement activity, Operation Tiger will continue throughout the rest of the year and into the next. The tiger is watching.
