Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 27th January to 5th February:

Chequer Street / Bourdillon Close / High Street – Police received several reports of cold-callers operating in St Ives and surrounding villages on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th January. The door-to-door sellers claimed to be reformed offenders on a rehabilitation scheme. A police patrol later located cold-callers operating in Bluntisham and gave words of advice regarding their activities and behaviour.

There is no genuine scheme that involves selling items on the doorstep, and police advice is never to buy items from such persons. (Refs CC-28012021-0118, CC-28012021-0246 and CC-28012021-0307)
