A NUMBER of crimes have been reported to the Market Rasen Neighbourhood Policing Team in the last week.

Last Thursday several poles on the A46 Main Road in Ussleby were cut down by offenders who then stole the cabling from the poles.

Anyone who may have seen or heard anything over recent days is asked to call police with incident number 256 of June 30.

Also at around 6pm on Thursday, June 30, offenders damaged the glass in patio doors at the rear of a dwelling on Farriers Way, Market Rasen.

Anyone who may have seen this incident, or who has any information is asked to call police.

On the same day thieves stole diesel from an irrigation pump and a battery at a farm in Atterby.

Over recent weeks there have also been several thefts of BT cables from boxes across the Market Rasen area.

The usual method used by thieves is to cut the cables and then drag them into fields in order to cut them up into more manageable lengths, before loading the cable into a vehicle.

Anyone who witnesses any suspicious activity is asked to call Lincolnshire Police immediately on 0300 111 0300.
