Okehampton Police Desk for April 20

By Contributor in Crime

A dog theft and several car break-ins are part of this week’s Okehampton police desk.

• A BLACK, medium-sized Labrador went missing from an address in Lewdown on April 11.

The dog had an ID collar and was microchipped.

It is suspected that it was stolen. If anyone has been offered a black Labrador for sale or has any information relating to its whereabouts, contact police on 101, quoting crime reference number CR/026907/17.

• POLICE recorded three separate thefts from vehicles over the bank holiday weekend. Officers are reminding people that leaving vehicles unlocked or items on display makes their vehicles and property easy targets for opportunists and thieves.

• THE public is being given a rare behind-the-scenes look at summer policing in Devon and Cornwall thanks to a major new primetime TV series.

The work of the force has been captured for a four-part documentary, Devon and Cornwall Cops, which started on Monday, April 10 on ITV,

The series, narrated by Neil Morrissey, follows officers and staff as they work across the biggest geographical force area in England through the summer months of 2016.

From the Isles of Scilly to the crowds of Plymouth, the show gives the public an insight into how Devon and Cornwall Police tackles the unique challenge of policing more than 700 miles of coastland plus urban and rural communities.
