Purse with £600 stolen
11:53am Wednesday 2nd January 2013 in News
RYEDALE police reported an almost trouble-free Christmas holiday period around the district, with revels and celebrations passing off peacefully and just one incident being reported.
However, there were several incidents of criminal damage and thefts, police say.
A shopper at Morrisons in Malton had her purse, containing £600, stolen from her handbag on Christmas Eve.
Some 200 litres of diesel were stolen from a tank at Great Edstone on December 28, while at Yedingham, two tyres on a Mitsubushi car were slashed by vandals on December 23.
Vandals caused “significant” scratches to a Ford Mondeo car at Carr Lane, East Heslerton, on Sunday.
And would-be burglars attempted to get into a house at Warwick Close, Sheriff Hutton, after forcing a rear ground-floor window.
Thieves stole 200 metres of electric fencing from a farm near Slingsby, and police have had reports that a dry stone wall has been damaged at Beck Isle Farm, Pickering.
Two concrete statues were stolen after a wall was damaged at Smiddy Hill, Pickering, early on Sunday morning, and a paving stone was thrown through the window of a car parked at the Asda supermarket in Norton.
Anyone with any information relating to any of the above incidents is asked to contact Malton police station.
