Buglary – House – Heather Road

Approximately 4.15am Sunday 08 December,2019

detached house entered by climbing a wall before smashing rear patio door window.

Only kitchen access gained. A locked connecting door (which the intruders attempted to break down)

prevented access to rest of house; the intruders being disturbed by the occupants.

 

Three adult males seen hurrying away towards Birchwood Road.

Small items of personal property known to be stolen at this stage.

It is believed that the intruders were looking for the house owner’s car keys.

 

Appears similar to three men being disturbed in a rear garden at a house in Woodlands Road a few months ago.

SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOUR

I have had a report today concerning the suspicious behaviour of a woman walking the village and looking fairly closely at the houses she passed. A resident did confront her and she said in a foreign (perhaps Eastern European) that she was new to the area and looking for an entrance to the park, despite saying that she had moved into a house near the park. Obviously this sounds suspicious.

I did note that there was a posting on the Binley Woods Social Group facebook page yesterday, that included an excellent photo of the woman that matched the description given to me today and said that she had actually been dropped off (probably on the Rugby Rd) from a white van.

The incident has today been reported to the police via 101.

Should you see anyone/anything of this nature, dial 101 straight away, or if there are any historical sightings of something similar, email rrs@warwickshire.police.uk or call the Warwickshire Police Rugby Rural South and Central team on 01788853851

A46 SOUND DEMONSTRATION

The following is an extract from a letter received by the Parish Council from Highways England regarding a sound demonstration of the potential noise issues created by the forthcoming flyover.

INVITATION TO THE A46 COVENTRY JUNCTIONS SOUND DEMONSTRATION

As you are aware, Highways England is developing a scheme to upgrade the A46/A428 Binley junction. One of the key concerns for residents and stakeholders within Binley Woods has been the potential noise impact of the scheme.

As a result of these concerns, we have revised our proposals to include a solid barrier on the flyover and approach ramps which will benefit properties within Binley Woods.

To demonstrate the likely difference in road traffic sound levels we have developed a sound demonstration which will allow members of the public to hear predicted sound levels, both with and without our proposals, from various points within Binley Woods.

The sound demonstration will be hosted in our ‘Engagement Van’, the location and timings of the event are as follows:

 

Highways England Engagement Van Roseycombe Pub Car Park Rugby Road, Binley Woods, CV3 2AY

Thursday 24 October 13:00 – 20:00

Friday 25 October 10:00 – 20:00

 

A postcard is being sent to all residential addresses within Binley Woods to promote the sound demonstration and timings however we would welcome your support in informing interested Binley Woods residents and stakeholders.

BOGUS PHONE CALLS

All,

Please see below a warning from a resident that I received today

Subject: Bogus Phone Call

Hi Steve,

Just lately I have been receiving phone calls from my ‘service provider’. The woman, American accent, talks about my IP address being compromised, and action needed to protect it etc etc.   Obviously a scam.

This morning at 07. 28, I had a similar, but more soundingly plausible from an English man purporting to represent Offcom. I played along and then a woman, Indian accent, proceeded to go through her patter. When I asked , how did I know that she represented Offcom, and then requested a letter confirming the problem, the phone went dead.   The phone number they used was 02088513072, when dialled was unobtainable.

Obviously a scam, but quite a convincing one. It took me a while to decide that it was in fact a scam.   Others may not be so wary. I hope that you can us this incident to warn others.
