20/2  Monday 6.10 p.m. ‘ 6.45 p.m.  Nursery, Sill Bridge Lane, Waltham St. Lawrence.  A witness working nearby saw some suspicious activity and went to investigate.  They found the lock on the nursery gates had been cut off and an unknown car parked on site.  As soon as the offenders realised they had been spotted, they turned off their car lights and drove off at speed.  Thanks to that concerned witness, no entry was gained.  Our thanks to him.
19/2  Sunday 11.40 a.m.  Farm, Smewins Road, White Waltham.  Hunting Act Offence.  A witness was out riding, when she saw a dog run across the bridle path into the fields.  She then heard a man shouting ‘Fox’.  The fox was then chased by dogs.  She called off the dogs and spoke to their owners, who said they were just walking the dogs and had done nothing wrong.  She called the police, who attended immediately, including calling in the helicopter, to try to locate the men and their dogs.  A white transit van parked nearby was recovered.  The police had also received a call from a farm 2 miles away an hour before, about a similar incident – men with dogs possibly poaching / hare coursing.  They then located three men, but had nothing on them to connect them with any Hunting Act / hare Coursing offences.  Can everyone be vigilant if walking in the country ?  These offences do not only occur during the early hours of the morning in the dark – as you can see from this report.  For someone to be arrested, we need to have the evidence of poaching / hare coursing.  In a recent positive result, we achieved that because inside the van was a bag containing a hare !  We need the evidence, but even if we don’t have that, your phoning and us giving a quick response and talking to the men, is enough to ‘warn them off’.  Keep phoning !
