Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Hello good evening – this is PCSO Nigel Wass

We would like to appeal for witnesses after an attempted Burglary overnight the 9th and 10th and November at Wisbys Butchers Shop in the Market Place Wragby. Unknown offenders tried to gain access via forcing the front door of the shop. Incident 115 of the 10th refers.

We have also had reports of people being scammed in the Horncastle area after companies claiming to Microsoft have been accessing people’s computers on the pretence of fixing a fault on the computer.

On a good news note

Two men, Riley Smith, 42, of Sunrise Meadow Travellers site, Bluntisham, Cambridgeshire, and William Gaskin, 42, of Rose View Drive Travellers’ Site, Holbech, Lincolnshire, were jailed at Teesside Crown Court for three years and nine months today (November 1) following an investigation started in February 2017.The men were jailed after pleading guilty to conspiring to defraud elderly and vulnerable victims in relation to property repairs carried out at their homes. An investigation began in February 2017 after concerned relatives reported works conducted at the home of their 80-year-old relative who lived alone at an address in Filey, North Yorkshire. Following her admission to hospital and later residential care, the relatives then discovered cheques for £94,500 had been paid to the pair between January and October 2016 for works carried out to her drive, gardens and roof.

The above males have been known to target the Horncastle and Woodhall area in the past.

Thank you.
