PCSO arranges graffiti ‘clean up’

Leicestershire Police News Feed - Wed, 10/01/2014 - 16:26

A Police Community Support Officer from Hinckley and Bosworth has recently organised a graffiti ‘clean up’ event at a local skate park in Earl Shilton.

Although it is encouraged for people to graffiti on the skate park, the images being drawn on this occasion were not appropriate and had to be cleaned up in order to not cause offence to other users. The event took place on Saturday September 20 at the Hallow Park, Earl Shilton.

PCSO 6632 Seb Kedziora organised the clean up with a group of young people who had admitted to being responsible for the graffiti. The group also took part in litter picking on the park.

PCSO Kedziora, from Earl Shilton and Barwell Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Although it is encouraged for people to graffiti on the park, we wanted to make people aware that obscene images are not acceptable.

“We would like to ask parents to speak to their children and discourage them from this kind of activity.”

Anyone with information about crime and anti-social behaviour in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland is urged to call Leicestershire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, which is free and anonymous on 0800 555 111.

Calls to 101 cost 15p for the entire call from both mobile phones and land lines. Calls to Crimestoppers are also free, but some mobile phone service providers may charge for this call.

Police are appealing for witnesses following a burglary in Lupin Close, Burbage, Leicestershire.

The incident happened at approximately 10.50pm on Tuesday September 2 when burglars broke into a bungalow in Lupin close, Burbage, Leicestershire.

The burglars gained entry through the front bedroom window and stole two imitation Omega Seamaster men’s watches. The watches have blue faces with silver metal link straps and are described as being good copies of the genuine versions.

House-to-house investigations have been carried out in the area and a black Honda Civic Type R was seen parked on the drive and in the cul-de-sac earlier in the evening. Police would like to speak to the driver to eliminate them from police enquiries.

Detective Constable 4219 Gemma Ashmore, the investigating officer, said: “We would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time. We are also keen to speak to anyone who may have information about where these watches may be or if anyone is offered the watches for sale in suspicious circumstances.”

“We are also keen to speak with the driver of the black Honda Civic seen in the area at the time of the incident in order to eliminate them from our enquiries.”
