Suspicious male seen in Scamblesby

Alert message sent 13/12/2018 10:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

At approximately 10.30pm last night (12th December) a suspicious male was disturbed in the rear garden of a property on Old Main Road in Scamblesby.  The male was seen tip-toeing across a gravel yard and when realising he'd been seen has run off.  He is described as a white male, in his 20's and he was wearing a green bomber type coat and beanie hat.

This morning 2 reports have been made of vehicles having been broken into in the village again on Old Main Road and another on Church Lane.  Tools have been taken from the van entered on Old Main Road.

Do you have CCTV and live in this area?  If so we politely ask for you to review any footage you may have which may help trace and identify the offender.

If you have any information relating to either of the offences or saw this male please call 101 and quote incident 486, 12/12/18.

As ever, please remain alert.  Our area is being targetted at the moment with a concerning rise in burglary dwellings being reported to us.  Properties being targetted are generally when the owner/occupier is away from the premise, so if you're going away please tell a neighbour and/or a friend and save any social media posts until you return.  Don't advertise that you're not there!  I would also like to advocate that where possible you do as much as possible to 'target harden' yourself and consider home security as much as possible.  If we as a team can assist you with any re-assurance or advice regarding crime prevention please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Many thanks and keep safe.
