All Back from Annual leave in one piece, after white water rafting, trekking, cliff jumping and waterfall sliding in Sri Lanka !!! You would think I would know better at my age - more than 50 years older, than those enjoying those pursuits with me !!
I hope you all had a good Christmas / holiday and a wonderful New Year. FIRST - ANOTHER SEXTORTION CASE !
This time, the victim is young, having been born in 1998.
The aggrieved was registered on a dating website. He started chatting using Whatsapp to what he believed to be a woman. The conversation lead to him sending an intimate photo.
The ‘Woman’ then confirmed he was a man, who had also copied all of his contacts. He said he would send the photo to everyone on that list, if he didn’t send £350 !
The aggrieved is really anxious, his family never find out.
PLEASE, THINK ABOUT THIS AND NEVER SEND ANYONE, HOWEVER MUCH YOU TRUST THEM AT THIS TIME, INTIMATE PHOTOS. You never know where they will go if you fall out, or who will be sharing them.
ALSO - SENDING INDECENT IMAGES VIA A PHONE IS AN OFFENCE. Apart from being charged, you may have your phone confiscated for many months while our High Tech Crime Unit checks it !!!
DON’T LET IT BE YOU !
NO CRIME TO REPORT.
NO CRIME TO REPORT.
ASCOT & SOUTH ASCOT:
14/12 - 5/1 Ravensdale Road. Burglary. Entry to the property via side gate and then forced rear doors. Bedrooms searched. Safe ripped out of the base of a wardrobe and taken. Keys and cash stolen. Re safes - they are only as secure as the fixing. If they are screwed into the MDF bottom of a wardrobe, they can easily be levered out. Thieves now check wardrobes, specifically for safes, so this is no longer a secure location for valuable items.
4/1 - 5/1 Saturday 7 p.m. / Sunday 11.30 a.m. Sovereign Mews. Vamoose Burglary (where a car is stolen). A witness reported that their neighbour’s side gate and ground floor window was wide open. The house was checked and the front door was unlocked and that a set of car keys and a black Audi RS3 index YJ ** EAD had been stolen.
4/1 Saturday midnight / 7.40 p.m. Francis Chichester Close. The two passenger tyres on a van have been slashed.
5/1 - 6/1 Sunday 4 p.m. / Monday 7.45 a.m. Kinross Avenue. CAR ENTERED BY UNKNOWN MEANS - and searched. Nothing stolen.
4/1 Saturday 0.45 a.m. Woodside Road. Attempted Burglary. Bottom yard broken into the day before, but nothing taken. The owner then heard someone trying to break in. They turned on lights and believe the intruder made off.
