Excuse the short video as there is an irony. One of many places in Featherstone you would not wish to steel from is this one. To cut a story short these 3 white males with local accents aged early to mid twenties in a transit van sign written roofing on 3 sides were shown the error of their ways. This would have been left at that. However fate then came along. Take a note of the metal bucket taken out of the van which was eventually left with other items after error training by the van driving off at high speed spilling its load.
A couple of hours later a lovely 80 plus year old man arrived at a local shop nearby to buy a tin bucket. He had got wrapped up and obtained some cash because someone had been in his garden on Crossley Street nearby and stolen both his new tin buckets. The poor old guy was stressed because all he had was his coal fire and the bucket was part of his routine. His language was Featherstone sharp. By good luck staff who had seen the earlier incident and bucket asked the old guy to identify his bucket. What were the chances that he could identify one bucket. Yes it was his. It appears that Featherstone gardens have been robbed all morning. If you are a victim please add this to your report. The police are aware

Looks like is scrap man thief Wednesday for Featherstone with a twist. Last weeks scrap men were replaced this week with another trio following in the steps of last weeks rekey of Featherstone. This time the theory was to park the van out of the way with a driver while 2 white males checked out possible good spots found the week before. The white male pictured is about 5ft and thin aged about 30. This one is like a whippet shooting about and looking while his mate pretends to look else where but actually is acting as a look out. A little bit of an accent with this male (traveller). Again taught not to trespass. The irony was before this picture they had a good look around Labour Cllr Dicks house. Perhaps they should have been left! Undecided

Just when you wrongly begin to think that every youth in Station Lane is a wrong one because of the few, an event happens that gives heart in the knowledge that some good values still exist. Recently a store was robbed and youths gave chase, retrieved the items stolen and then returned them. Imagine if it became cool to stop crime by the people we assume commit crime and the respect and age gap understanding that could be achieved.  Smiley

My hat off to local Featherstone business's today for pulling together and giving their help and time to assist the large number of outside police that arrived suddenly in Featherstone this morning.
You may have seen the many marked and unmarked cars that had arrived in Featherstone after a chase that ended in Featherstone with a stolen car being abandoned and the "daytime robber" making off on foot.

BT Phone Conmen Calling Again

Please be aware the Indian call centre, posing as BT is calling again locally. In a poor accent so you struggle to hear what is said you are informed that there has been a BT Fault and breach of security. Your internet will be shut down the next day unless you act now.  If you ask them to confirm they are BT they will say they are and give BTs head office address in London.  You will be asked to go to your computer and press the windows button, ALT and L at the same time. After that there is no more information.
BT will never ask you to proceed this way.

 Last Year about July Featherstone acquired a prolific burglar. By August the problem was getting out of hand and this was sent to the police.
Looks like Featherstone has acquired a professional burglar over the last month who likes commercial premises. There is video from Ponte Van Centre, Debbie’s Bites and the Dentist and a picture is growing. So far it looks,
1.    Ponte Van Centre
2.    Carleton’s Car Sales
3.    Shuhag
4.    Debbie’s Bites
5.    Vets
6.    Chiropodist
7.    Car Spares shop
8.    Ponte Dental
9.    CCTV cameras stolen from behind precinct shops
 
There was a few word reply from the police. The police did not inform shop keepers of the problem.   Over the next few months the burglaries continued so much that attempts were made a second time to some shops.
10.   Top Dentist,
11.   Chicos
12.   Figos

Thankfully names did start cropping up as the list of not happy shop keeper grew and more people started digging. The police have apparently made and arrest and he has possibly been charged with one theft. The shop keeper in question has heard nothing.  Looks like its down to the shop keepers to find out then. Who is Woody? About 5ft 7” white chubby, walks with a limp possibly due to drug abuse. Lived or lives at bottom of the lane.  Usually wears a cap. There are a few people who would love to know who he is. Lips sealed
