Police in West Leicester, particularly the Westcotes & New Parks areas have seen a rise in house burglary over the previous few weeks. We have put additional patrols in place in response to this which has led to a number of key arrests of individuals and these investigations continue. We will continue to provide additional visibility in an effort to prevent further offending but please let us know if you see anything or anyone suspicious.
As always your help is required to ensure doors and windows are secure, side gates locked and general crime prevention is considered. This includes removing anything valuable from vehicles. If you need further assistance or advice get in touch with your local neighbourhood officer or PCSO.
The Fosse Ward team have executed a number of warrants at addresses on Kate St in October. Two people remain under investigation for drug offences.
I would also encourage residents living in Newfoundpool to report any sightings of a man barred from Pool Road, Ruby Street, Rowan Street and Ivanhoe Street. 46 year old Garry Pick from New Parks has been banned by Court Order from the above roads until July 26 next year following an injunction taken out by the Riverside Housing Association and Leicester Police.
A man from West Leicester has been jailed along with another for nearly 20 years between them after they were found guilty of a serious assault in King Street last year. 20 year old Kyle Feveriere from Glenfield Road was jailed for 12 years after he was convicted of wounding with intent and possession of a bladed article.
Officers will be on Buckminster Road on Nov 25th from 12-2pm visiting residents to identify policing issues and at St Anne?s on December 8th from 10-12noon for a Beat Surgery.
All the local Neighbourhood teams continue to work hard responding to the issues you raise so please continue to engage with us either in person, 101 or via the phone numbers / links provided on the Leicestershire Police website under ?Local Policing?. Anyone has any further information on who is committing criminal offences or Anti-Social Behaviour then you can ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or speak to any of your local Neighbourhood team in confidence.
