March 12, 2013
Parking and speeding are still an issue in the northern parishes of Warfield, Binfield, Cranbourne, North Ascot and Winkfield.
The team are reminding parents that parking on hatched markings outside schools is an offence.
A 19-year-old man and 23-year-old man received formal warnings for possessing cannabis, and a 21-year-old man was cautioned for making off without payment.
A 26-year-old man was cautioned for shoplifting, while a 43-year-old woman received a caution in relation to assault without injury to a constable.
IN Bracknell Central North, car owners are warned to keep all items out of sight as thieves have been known to smash into cars just for loose change.
The team dealt with a series of drug offences, including giving a 19-year-old man fixed penalty notice. A 25-year-old man was given a warning for cannabis, a 23-year-old man was cautioned for possessing drugs and a 22-year-old man was charged for the same offence.
REDUCING anti-social behaviour, tackling environmental issues and stopping alcohol offences are priorities for the Bracknell Town Centre team. They dealt with 10 shoplifters and three public order offences in the last two months.
Police are reminding people to take care when using a cashpoint or chip and pin device and never keep valuables in your back pocket.
ILLEGAL raves in Crowthorne led the Bracknell Central South team to deal with people from Birch Hill and Hanworth.
Two raves at the beginning of February triggered police patrols, which the team say prevented further raves.
Tyre slashing has returned to Great Hollands with four vehicles targeted during one evening in Holbeck. The team’s enquiries are ongoing.
A SPATE of burglaries has kept the Crowthorne team busy. Officers carried out high visibility reassurance patrols and are urging people to re-think their home security.
The team says tools should be locked away and people should consider property marking them. People are also encouraged to fit strong, lockable, high gates across passageways and consider fitting locks to garages.
IN Sandhurst 15 people were charged with offences. There were five shoplifters, including a 14-year-old girl from Sandhurst who was issued with a Youth Restorative Disposal.
A 68-year-old man from Owlsmoor was charged with assault and a 28-year-old man from Crowthorne was charged with theft from a dwelling. A 21-year-old man from Sandhurst was charged with possessing cannabis, and a 24-year-old man from Owlsmoor was charged with theft.
