The police are also investigating the theft of a child’s motor cross motor cycle from Deer Park, Wigton that occurred within the last 10 days prior to 5th November 2013 and the theft of quad bike from Aspatria on the evening of Tuesday 5th November 2013.

Enquiries into these offences are being made.

We are working to seek the recovery of these items.

“We ask that the public again to help us by properly securing all of their out buildings, garages and garden sheds. We are also asking for the public not leave any pedal cycle or other motor cycle outside in a place from where it could be stolen. People are out looking for such items to steal and will do if they are given the opportunity.

“With this in mind the public should report any suspicious incident, a report that is wrong is helpful and a report that is right is very helpful. We have low crime rates and the best way to keep it that way is for the police and public to work and support each other. We have officers patrolling our towns and rural areas 24 hours a day, every day. If the public know of anything or see anything suspicious then this information may prevent another offence being committed and another innocent person suffering.”

Police Dog Blue and his handler from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Dog Unit found a vulnerable teenager on Wednesday (October 18).

Officers were called to an address in Friday Bridge, Cambridgeshire at around 10.45pm after concerns were raised about a teenager who had gone missing.

Due to concerns for her welfare, PD Blue and his handler were also called to assist with the search.

German Shepherd Blue was deployed and began searching the local area. Whilst going down a nearby lane, Blue led his handler into an area of woodland and undergrowth.

It was here that the pair found the missing teenager. They were then able to provide immediate care before other officers arrived to take her home.

Inspector Iain Clark, who is the head of the BCH Dog Unit, said: “The officers had numerous places to search and I am glad PD Blue and his handler were able to provide assistance, which saw the teenager safely found within a short period of time.

“I am proud of their work and this is another great example of how the BCH Dog Unit can support other officers around the three counties.”

Police Pay

A man who admitted racially harassing security guards at student halls has been served with a Community Order and a fine.

The 22-year-old from Luton pleaded guilty to two counts of racially aggravated harassment and criminal damage at Luton Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Thursday). The sentencing followed an incident in student halls in Luton on 24 September.

Hate Crime Sergeant James Hart said: “This was an unacceptable incident which was extremely distressing for the victims. We won’t tolerate hate crime in our county as everyone has the right to live free from fear or harassment.

“We hope this case will provide reassurance to victims that we take hate crime offences very seriously. Victims should not have to suffer such abuse and should feel comfortable reporting their experiences to the authorities.”

The man was handed a 12-week curfew with electronic tag and must pay £100 compensation to the victims.
