WE HAVE had a good response to the crimes we featured last week and have been given several good pieces of information which we are acting on at the moment.
More and more stolen property is entering the second hand market and we would urge you not to buy anything unless you know its history.
If there is little or no demand for stolen goods then it is less likely that thieves will steal if they know they will have difficulty selling what they have acquired.
Now please take a look at this week’s list of crimes and see if you can help.
