In the early hours of this morning (just before 1am) the Tesco store in Ramsey was broken into. The thieves smashed a window to get in, they then attacked the self service tills, escaping with a small amount of cash. If anyone has any information that may help us with our enquiries please contact by dialling 101 or via our website. Alternatively information can be passed via Crimestoppers. PS Andy Street

Dear subscriber, We are currently receiving exceptionally high numbers of calls to both 999 and 101. Staff in our contact centres are working incredibly hard to reach the people in most need as soon as possible. Please only dial 999 in a genuine emergency. If the situation you are calling about is not an emergency, please consider reporting information online rather than dialling 101. Non-emergency incidents where the suspects are not at the scene, such as theft, criminal damage and burglary can be reported via - https://www.contactcambspolice.uk/Report/Crime/ Anti-social or careless driving can also be reported on our website - https://www.contactcambspolice.uk/Report/AcDriving.aspx Thank you for your co-operation at this busy time.

Dear all, Taking just a few steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary this summer. Here are a few tips: Ensure you lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house. Garden entertaining - Please close all windows/doors at the front/side of your property when out of your sight, this is an ideal opportunity for a burglar to strike. Please do not be complacent and let your barriers down. Keep your house and car keys somewhere safe, especially out of sight and away from the letterbox. Remember a device could be used to hook the keys through the letterbox. Install good outside lighting – dusk to dawn (front) and motion sensor (rear). Ask a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property when you go away on holiday. Use timers on your lights (lamp) or leave a radio on to make the property appear occupied. Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows. Be creative about where you store any high value items, such as: - jewellery. Ensure your fencing around your garden is in good condition, you could add trellis on the top to make it less appealing to climb. Securing bikes at home by locking them to an immovable object (ground anchor) inside a locked shed or garage. Look at purchasing a shed alarm and use adequate locks, such as: - closed shackle padlocks. Keep ladders and tools stored away. Don't leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home. Ensure any side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property. Use a closed shackle padlock or consider a Gatemate Long Throw Lock and Security Eschutcheon, this a Sold secure product with a Bronze accreditation. There are other similar accredited products on the market. Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property. For example: - trim high hedges. Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your area. Take photos and mark your property with your post code and house number. You can also register any valuables for free with Immobilise. www.immobilise.com Install a visual burglar alarm or CCTV.

We are current seeing a high spike of vehicle crime across the city. Please can we remind everyone to make sure your vehicle is locked and secure and that no items are left on display the vehicle? However small, please remove items to avoid the risk of your vehicle being a target. Cars are being broken into for items as small as loose change, sunglasses and clothing not just valuable items like Sat Nav and Mobile phones. When you leave your vehicle, double check you have removed all items and your car is locked. If you park your car on a driveway, please consider purchasing a driveway alarm.

Use it anywhere in your home to monitor your front door, garage or driveway. You'll never be surprised again! • Installs in seconds • No tools or wires • Motion activated • Detects people, animals or vehicles • Battery operated • Durable weather resistant plastic construction. A thief doesn’t need much incentive to steal items from your car!

Fraudsters have been advertising vehicles and machinery for sale on various selling platforms online. The victims, after communicating via email with the fraudster, will receive a bogus email which purports to be from an established escrow provider (a third party who will keep the payment until the buying and selling parties are both happy with the deal). These emails are designed to persuade victims to pay upfront, via bank transfer, before visiting the seller to collect the goods. The emails also claim that the buyer (victim) has a cooling off period to reclaim the payment if they change their mind. This gives victims the false sense of security that their money is being looked after by this trustworthy third party, when in fact it is not and the money has gone straight to the fraudster. Protect yourself: When making a large purchase such as a new car or machinery, always meet the seller face to face first and ask to see the goods before transferring any money. If you receive a suspicious email asking for payment, check for spelling, grammar, or any other errors, and check who sent the email. If in doubt, check feedback online by searching the associated phone numbers or email addresses of the seller. Contact the third party the fraudsters are purporting to be using to make the transaction. They should be able to confirm whether the email you have received is legitimate or not. False adverts often offer vehicles or machinery for sale well below market value to entice potential victims; always be cautious. If it looks too good to be true then it probably is. If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it to Action Fraud by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk, or by calling 0300 123 2040.
