POLICE: A new report shows the scores of crimes that police had to deal with in July and August.
Berkhamsted cops have been called out to tackle crimes ranging from a major car accident in Boswick Lane to a pedestrian that was struck by a mobility scooter.
The report was drawn up by Steve Patton, the town’s police community support officer.
He was called to a burglary in a block of flats at Birtchnell Close on Tuesday, August 2, after three men broke into a home with screwdrivers.
They were arrested and two were charged with burglary.
Police were also called to tackle a rave at Beacon Road, Ringshall on Sunday, August 8. There were 100 vehicles and 400 revellers, but no arrests were made.
Mr Patton said: “We talked to the organisers and said: ‘This is not nice for people walking their dogs.’
“Then they shut it down and went home.”
