Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 2nd to 8th February:


Statfold Green, Warboys – Police received a report of an attempted  telephone fraud from a Statfold Green resident on Thursday 1st February. The resident had received a phone call from someone pretending to be a policeman from the Metropolitan Force in London who stated that one of the resident’s bank cards had been used in a fraud.
