POLICE NEWS (29/05/06)

 

By J. Brock (FINN)

 

Sergeant Dave Roberts of the Royal Falkland Islands Police updates us on the latest police activity.

 

At 1935hrs on Monday, 22 May 2006 Royal Falkland Islands Police Officers came across youths on Dean Street riding peddle bicycles with no lights on during official light-up hours.  Those hours are one hour before dawn and one hour after dusk.

 

At 2011hrs on Wednesday, 24 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received a report of accidental damage – a broken window – at the Infant/Junior School.  The incident is being dealt with by the school and the person causing the damage.

 

At 0754hrs on Thursday, 25 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received a report of damage to a vehicle behind Jubilee Villas.  The incident is under investigation and anyone with information can call 27222 and ask for Sgt Roberts.

 

At 1256hrs on Thursday, 25 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received a report of a possible traffic hazard when a large number of baskets were blowing across the Bypass Road across from Megabid. 

 

At 1944hrs on Thursday, 25 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received a report of a cable down on Davis Street.  Power and Electrical and Cable & Wireless personnel dealt with this. 

 

At 2008hrs on Thursday, 25 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received a report of a vehicle being driven eratically on Ross Road in the vicinity of the West Store.  The driver was located and given a verbal warning.

 

At 0835hrs on Friday, 26 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received a report of a sick seal by the FIC car park.  FI Conservation and the Veterinary Department dealt with the animal.

 

At 1818hrs on Friday, 26 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received the report of a possible theft. One person is helping police with their enquiries.

 

At 0408hrs on Sunday, 28 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received a report of damage to property on John Street.  One person is helping them with their enquiries.

 

At 1409hrs on Sunday, 28 May 2006 the Royal Falkland Islands Police received a report about a sick penguin on Surf Bay.  The Veterinary Department dealt with the Penguin.

 

Sergeant Roberts reports that over the weekend 10 accidental 999 calls were received.  Cable & Wireless advise that even though key pads are locked there are three numbers that still can be called.  One is 999, the other, 911 and a third, 112, an international emergency number can still be dialled with a locked key pad.  There is nothing Cable & Wireless Could or would do to change this.  Police ask that care be taken when mobile phones are placed in pockets.  It is advised that phones be stowed properly (in cases when available).

 

The Royal Falkland Islands Police would like to remind all bike owners to secure them when they are left alone – even for a minute.  It can take less than a minute to steal a bike.

 

If you are missing a bike the Royal Falkland Islands Police advise you to give them a call on 27222.  They have about 20 bikes that have been turned in.  Sergeant Roberts says one bike is worth quite a bit of money and is sure someone would like to have it back.

 

SEATBELTS ARE MANDATORY ON ALL ROADS FROM THURSDAY, 01 JUNE 2006.
