Off-duty police officer catches burglar in Tisbury.

Wiltshire Police (UK) - Mon, 09/18/2017 - 11:46

An off-duty Wiltshire Police officer managed to catch a burglar in Tisbury after a member of the public reported to him that a suspicious man had been seen entering the garden of the local vicarage.

Yesterday evening (Sunday 17 September 2017) PC Steve Porter was contacted by the member of the public while off shift.

Steve went to investigate and checked the grounds of the vicarage - he could not find anyone but phoned 999 to report a possible burglary. While waiting for on-duty officers to get there Steve saw the suspect leave the premises and managed to stop and detain him until uniformed officers arrived.

The suspect was searched and found to be in possession of religious clothing, over £300 pounds of church donations and two bottles of alcohol stolen from the vicarage.

A 38-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and is currently in custody.

Inspector Andy Fee said: "This is great work carried out by Steve who just happened to be off-shift at the time - a good example which shows our local communities that our dedicated police officers are never really off duty.
"Had it not been for Steve’s actions it is highly likely that our suspect would’ve gone before on-duty officers arrived."

Statement after national threat level lowered

Wiltshire Police (UK) - Sun, 09/17/2017 - 18:37

Statement below after the UK threat level is lowered to 'severe'.


T/Superintendent Dave Minty said:
“The UK terror threat level has today (17/9)  been lowered to 'severe' after being raised to 'critical' on Friday following the incident at Parsons Green tube station in London.
"Despite this reduction, we will continue to review our operational policing plans to make sure our communities are safe.
“The public are likely to still see an increased police presence over the next couple of days but this is nothing to be alarmed by – there remains no current, specific threat to Wiltshire or the South West.
“Our advice remains the same: please be alert, but not alarmed.
“Be reassured that we have well-established and well-rehearsed plans in place to deal with attacks of this nature and these are tested regularly with partners to ensure we’re as ready as we possibly can.
“We’d urge the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour or activity to us on 101 or via the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321. In an emergency the public should always call 999."
