Recently we have had a number of reports of suspicious white vans driving around looking for scrap metal in Bishopthorpe and surrounding areas. Several reports suggest that the drivers of these vehicles are actually accessing gardens and trespassing on land without the owner’s permission. We ask that you report such incidents and also take a note of any vehicle registrations and descriptions.
It may be worth reviewing your out-building security and home security in the run up to the Christmas period and darker nights.
Your local Police team are patrolling the rural parts of York such as Bishopthorpe and Copmanthorpe, so please say hello to the officers. We can offer free home crime prevention advice along with property marking services.
