Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Wednesday 17th June 2020 for Maidenhead.
 I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage. If you have any that might be of interest to the police, can you please make contact with us, quoting reference number given.
15/6 - 16/6  Monday 0.05 a.m. / Tuesday 7.30 a.m.  Norfolk Road.  .  CAR ENTERED BY UNKNOWN MEANS - Sat Nav, sunglasses and a jacket stolen Ref. No:  43200180131
17/6  Wednesday 4 a.m..  College Glen.  The police received a call from a Witness who said a car alarm was going off nearby and they had seen 2 men crouching down, running towards Grassy Lane.  The police attended immediately and carried out an area search.  They located a car with the driver’s side window smashed.  They traced the owner, who reported a wallet and jacket had been stolen.  Ref. No:  43200180505
16/6  Tuesday 0.40 a.m.  Shop. High Street Cookham.  Attempted burglary.  Neighbours were awoken by loud banging.  They looked out to see a car parked up and a man trying to smash the shop window with a paving slab.  They shouted and the man ran back to the waiting car with its boot open and engine running.  He jumped in and the car drove off at speed towards Sutton Road.  This incident was captured on CCTV, but if anyone in that area has additional video doorbell / CCTV footage of anything suspicious, or connected to this incident, please make contact with us, quoting ref. No:  432001709112
15/6  Monday 1 p.m. 3 p.m.  Pub car Park, Sutton Road, Cookham.  Car keyed.  Ref. No: 43200178711
15/6  Monday 10.30 a.m.  Burchetts Green Road, Burchetts Green.  2 vehicles, one a van broken into on a driveway.  Citizen black watch, Oakley sunglasses, 2 Makita saws with boxes and other tools stolen from one, A laser level, Stihl saw, 2 Makita drills, a Makita reciprocating saw, 5 Makita batteries and a charger stolen from the other.  Often the rear compartments of vans are not alarmed.  If you have a van, it is often impossible to empty it of tools when parked up at night.  If you have a van, or know of anyone with a van, recommend that they buy a ‘shed alarm’ to place in the back.  These are very inexpensive and often on special offer, at major online retail outlets.  They need no fixing and can simply be placed inside the rear of a van / shed / garage, contain a heat and motion sensor, are really easy to operate - fobbed on and off and are battery powered.  They sound at 110 dbls, which in the early hours, in the back of a metal van, will be deafening and wake up everyone around.  A few pounds, could save hundreds of pounds worth of tools, which are often someone’s livelihood !  Ref. No: 43200178287
15/6  Monday 2 a.m.  Shepherds Close, Hurley.  A catalytic converter stolen from under a Toyota Prius.  Ref. No:  43200178318
15/6  6.25 p.m.  Bridle Road.  CAR ENTERED BY UNKNOWN MEANS - glasses and logbook stolen.  Ref. No: 43200178835

Can everyone who lives nearby these crimes, who has a video doorbell / CCTV, please check their footage.  These are opportunist thieves, walking along roads and up and down driveways, trying car door handles.  If they find a car left open, they search it.  They may have tried your car, but found it locked.
Leaving cars unlocked in the road or on driveways, acts as a crime attractor for our opportunist thieves.  If there are easy pickings to be had, news will spread amongst opportunist thieves and they will be attracted to the area.  While there, they will also look for other opportunities, re sheds, garages and houses !  Can everyone please make sure, they lock their cars and leave nothing on display or of value in the car.  The most common items stolen from cars are sunglasses and loose change left in the centre console.  You do not want your car windows smashed for a few pounds, left in the centre console of side pockets of the car.

Please consider using our online reporting system but please note this reporting tool is not for use where a crime happening right now, the suspect is still at the scene, or anyone seriously injured or in immediate danger.
