"There have recently been several thefts from cars and a van and thefts from outbuildings in Churt. Police have been provided with good quality CCTV imaging from one of these thefts. I am afraid that criminals are never far away and it is our job to make life as difficult as possible for them. Please, therefore, do not leave anything of value in cars and vans and make sure that any outbuildings are securely locked. Please make sure that all crime and any information or intelligence is reported to the police. Your information, however small you may think it is, could be a crucial piece of evidence in a much larger jigsaw. Finally please be assured that crime in Churt is at a very low level, but please be vigilant and protect your belongings and let us keep it that way."
