Distraction Offences in Alcester - Over the last couple of weeks we have had reports of a male entering town centre shops asking for help / directions. He has been carrying a leaflet to Dudley Zoo which he uses to put over mobile phones on desks and counters which he then tries to steal. He was last in Alcester on Saturday 10th August. He is described as Eastern European male, late 20's/early 30's, approx. 5' 5-6" tall, slim build, wearing a purple tracksuit & cap. Something for our shops and businesses in the Studley and Henley areas to be aware of.

Reporting Incidents and Suspicious Circumstances -   We always recommend that if you have a crime to report or if you see something that is suspicious, you call straight away on 101 or 999 as required. The quicker the information is received by our communication call handlers the better chance we have to check the details in 'real time' allowing the most suitable response to be given.
