The offences span the latter half of last week and also include photos being posted of a can of beer being poured away after a man was caught drinking in a prohibited area in Wisbech.

Police described the arrest of the drugs suspect and a second arrest on the same day for a knife offence as being “some great work by the neighbourhood policing team”.

Warrants were executed in Wisbech with the result that one man was arrested for possession of heroin with intent to supply and another charged with possession of a blade in a public place.

But it’s not just the police who were kept busy – their PCSOs all figure in the week’s ‘credits’ for pro active policing.

Later it was noted that “officers called to Wisbech town centre, males causing anti-social behaviour: beer has gone down the drain, persons warned and removed from the area “.

PCSOs were also credited with a “re-assurance visit to an elderly lady who had been the victim of a recent burglary”.

The arrest of two men on suspicion of fraud offences in Doddington was also noted- both men were taken to the police investigation centre at King’s Lynn.

“Neighbourhood officers tackle issues that affect the community in response to reports made by said community. Parking infringements are high up on the list in terms of reports received from the public”.

One woman quickly agreed pointing out that “my son is severely sight impaired as is his granddad.

“They both use canes to navigate their way around town and are forever banging into cars that are parked on pavements. To be honest if people’s cars get damaged by their canes it’s their fault in my opinion”.
