Beware Dognapping is on the Increase…..

We are urging members of the public to remain alert and to look out for suspicious activity following a national rise in dog thefts and a number of attempted burglaries across the north of Cambridgeshire.

Between 16 and 23 February, there were several reports of attempted burglaries and concerns around these being a precursor to dog thefts.

DC Craig Trevor said: “Nationally there has been an increase in reports of dog thefts, however we have been made aware of incidents and concerns regarding potential attempted dog thefts across north Cambridgeshire, in particular the Thorney and Whittlesey areas.

“I would urge residents across the whole county to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to us. Social media can be a great platform for providing information but it is extremely important this information is passed to us and not just shared on the internet.

“At least five reports have included seeing a blue Audi A3 in the area of the attempted burglaries and suspicious activity, therefore I would ask members of the public to be on the lookout and report any concerns to us.”
