Monthly Crime Bulletin – July 2021

Incidents of note over the last month;

Around the 17th June a waste bin has been destroyed and a bench has sustained fire damage in the gardens at Thornborough Hall, Leyburn.  There has been a noticeable increase in young people seen around Thornborough Woods and at the Folly recently, and whilst it is lovely to see everyone enjoying the gardens etc, please respect the area and those residents who live in the immediate vicinity.

Overnight on 17th June and again on 24th June between 18:30 and 21:00, two Little White Buses have had their tyres damaged in what appears to be yet another intentional act of criminal damage.  These two most recent incidences (in an increasing list of occurrences now), happened in the Gayle Lane area of Hawes whilst the buses were parked up for the night.  (#12210146543 and #12210142081)

At around 13:00 on 3rd July, a silver Ford Transit van was seen fly tipping at the top of the Buttertubs Pass. (#12210152392).   Richmondshire District Council and ourselves take fly tipping very seriously and so we ask if anyone witnesses acts such as this, to please try and get vehicle details and report it via ‘101’ (or online) as soon as possible.

Leyburn Co-Op thefts;

  • On 3rd July at 17:30, two males and a female stole alcohol to the value of circa £450.
  • On 8th July at 11:05, a male stole several small value items worth approx. £15.
  • At 16:05 on 9th July, a male stole alcohol and other items worth £76.50.

Sometime between 9th – 10th July, graffiti has appeared on a stone farm building in West Stonesdale in Swaledale.

Enquiries into all of the above are continuing so if anyone has any information please do contact NYP.

As I write, we have not yet moved into the Fire Station but this is planned for August.  We will keep you updated as to when we have officially moved bases.
