[RINGMASTER COMMUNITY MESSAGING – Buxton – BG663 Vehicle damage, Glossop]
Overnight on Wednedsday 2nd/Thursday 3rd September 2009, a spate of attacks on motor vehicles took place on Cottage Lane, the Eyam and Bakewell areas of Gamesley. A number of vehicles had their number plates ripped off and stolen or damaged as well as around 17 vehicle badges and motifs being removed or damaged in the Glossop area. We would ask that anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious that night please contact the police on 0345 123 33 33. The officer in the case is Pc 3307 Neale of Glossop Police.
In recent weeks there has been an increase in thefts of unattended pedal cycles-mainly from rear gardens/yards where they have been left insecure.
We would ask that all persons who own pedal cycles try to lock them away when not in use and to also make a record of frame numbers and get them security marked, if possible.
