UPDATE ON SCAM DOOR KNOCKING

Further to my email last night, another resident has reported it happening to him.

Unfortunately this resident was treated in a rather offhand manner by the police, so if you call 101, please can you inform the person you speak to that you are reporting as requested by PC Kunaal Marld at Twickenham Police station.

SCAM DOOR KNOCKING

There have been a couple of incidents over the past 24 hours of a man knocking on doors in Talbot Road and Haliburton Road asking for money. This man calls himself Richard and has a story about needing money for a bus or taxi after being locked out of a house. He knocked at a house at around 7am on Tuesday morning and obtained cash from the resident. He then knocked on other doors, but was unsuccessful from reports I have received.

This is thought to be the man:

He may look slightly slimmer and less tanned – if it is this man, his name is Darren Bingham and he has just been released from Wormwood Scrubs a couple of days ago. Part of his release condition is not to knock on doors soliciting money from people he does not know. He pulled exactly the same scam in Haliburton Road last summer, giving is name as Richard, pretending he was locked out of a house in Haliburton Road which turns out not to actually exist.

The police have instructed to call 999 if he knocks on your door. If you are unable to call immediately, call 101 when you can to report it. It is imperative that we report this as the police cannot build a case without it being reported.

PLEASE READ, WATCH AND CIRCULATE THIS INFORMATION

On Monday morning, 16th January 2017, the following footage was made by a nest camera inside a kitchen in Ailsa Road. This captures a man attempting to enter the house at around 4.30am. Apparently this is the second time in 7 days that this has been attempted.

Please be vigilant about locking doors (obviously) and not leaving keys in doors, even locked, when you are out or overnight.

Obviously if anyone has experienced anything similar or recognises the man, please report it to the police.

ABANDONED CARS / CARS NOT MOVED

I had a visit from Eugenia the other day to ask to pass on a message about cars not being moved for weeks on end. Unfortunately, cars being dumped on our streets has become a familiar problem, but if they are taxed and MOT’d they are legally permitted to remain, no matter how long that may be.

So, instead of calling the police about a car that hasn’t been moved recently, they ask that you check the details of the car registration on the DVLA website
https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-tax
https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-status

If these are not in order, then by all means call 101. If they are all up to date there is nothing they will be able to do about the vehicle.

However, if the vehicle is unsafe, for example has clearly been in an accident, has bits falling off and it obviously abandoned, then please call 101 to report it or online at

She also mentioned the complaints about the small red car, and its occupant that resides at the garage end of Haliburton Road. They are doing all they can to persuade the individual not to camp out in the n

Just to let you know that there has been an attempted break in to a garage on St Margarets Road. A clear attempt has been made to break the lock and open the door, doing much damage in the process.

If you have sheds and garages, make sure they are safely locked up when you are not at the property.

There have been a spate of burglaries recently across St Margarets, most recently focussed on the Moormead Park area. These have been characterised by break-in through front and side doors. There was one reported in Heron Road a couple of weeks ago. An arrest was made today for break-ins linked to the Moormead area, the suspect being linked to at least 7 break-ins. With any luck that might be an end to that for a while, but please be vigilant with open windows and doors especially at this time of the year, with warmer weather (!) and school holidays coming up.

There also seems to have been some theft of wing mirror covers from cars. We were targeted last week, and another neighbour in Haliburton Road was also targeted. We have a Volvo, but I am unsure of the other car. Given the cost to replace these, I can imagine this being a quite a nice little black-market earner for models of cars where the covers just clip on. We have been targeted for car parts stolen to order in the past in this area, and I have reported these two to the police. If you have experienced anything similar, please let me know and the police.
