Pitstone Crime Update from Thames Valley Police May 2021

Dates between – 01/10/2020 & 14/05/2021

Pitstone had 17 recorded crimes during this period. Of these 17, 6 of these were of note:

3 x reports of Anti-Social Behaviour

1 report of Criminal Damage

2 reports of suspicious vehicles in the area

We have also had other reports directly to us regarding Anti-Social Behaviour and possible drug use/dealing around the Memorial Hall/Pavillion area. We are regularly patrolling the area and are dealing with incidents accordingly. We would like to ask residents to report anything they see that is suspicious so we can build a bigger picture of what is occurring down there. They can do this by completing an online Webform via the Thames Valley Police website.

There have been reports of possible drug dealing up by the church and we have been patrolling the area regularly. We have not found anyone up there however we found a couple of “camps” in the wooded area and stopped 2 males in the area.

We have also had reports of drug dealing in the Castlemead area and the Industrial estate. We are aware that there is activity up by the fishing lakes along with a “camp” and we are keeping an eye on that area also.

Last summer the team conducted an operation in the village regarding the drug dealing issue. One person was arrested and upon searching their house, a substantial amount of drugs, money and weapons were seized.
