Week Ending Friday 1st of March 2013

Dear all,

Police investigating a fatal road traffic collision on the A31 continue to appeal for the driver of a Volvo XC90 believed to be involved to come forward – with the Crimestoppers charity now offering a reward of up to £1000.

Officers were called at 8.23pm on Sunday 24 February 2013 to the collision on the westbound carriageway of the A31 near the Ashley Heath roundabout.

The rider of a red moped, 16-year-old Jade Clark, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene.

Traffic Inspector Matt Butler said: “A number of vehicles were involved in the incident and one of these vehicles – a Volvo XC90 – left the scene before the police arrived.

.Renewed appeal after fatal A31 collision

“We know that the moped was upright at the time of the collision and believe that the Volvo XC90 was the first vehicle to collide with it.

“I need to trace the Volvo and urge anyone with information to contact me. I particularly appeal to the driver to get in touch.

“The front of the vehicle will be damaged. If anyone is aware of a Volvo XC90 which has sustained damage or has been repaired in the last few days, they should call the police urgently.”

Members of the public will only be eligible for the cash reward if they call the Crimestoppers line – on 0800 555 111 – with information that leads to the arrest and charge of an offender.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101 quoting incident number 24:393. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.

Detectives appeal to identify two Ringwood robbers

Published: Friday, March 1, 2013

Detectives are appealing for information from anyone who can identify two men who robbed a woman and two young men in Hightown Road, Ringwood.

At about 30 minutes past midnight on Saturday, February 16, the victims were walking in Hightown Road after a night out in Ringwood. Two men approached them from behind and attacked the trio.

A 21-year-old Ringwood man was punched in the face and knocked to the ground. A 19-year-old Verwood woman was slightly injured when she was spun around by the strap of her handbag and fell to the ground. Her bag was stolen, and a mobile phone snatched from her hand. An 18-year-old Ringwood youth also was injured.

The robbers took two mobile phones, a handbag and purse and an I pod touch.

The two robbers fled in separate directions. One headed towards the area of Christchurch Road and Mansfield Road. The other ran towards Hightown Gardens.

They are described as white, aged between 20 and 30, of average build and between 5ft 8ins and 6ft 1ins tall. Both wore dark hooded tops with the hoods up.

Police seek witnesses to Ringwood vehicle theft

Published: Friday, March 1, 2013

Police at Ringwood are appealing for witnesses to the theft of a pick-up truck from Fisherman’s Lay-by on the slip road for the A338 from the A31 at Ringwood.

Sometime between 5.45am and 6pm Monday, February 11, the green and silver Mitsubishi L200 Trojan was stolen. It often was parked at the lay-by by its Wimborne owner, who is a tradesman who was lift sharing.

The vehicle was found by police on February 18 in Salisbury Road, Ringwood.

Police want to hear from anyone who saw the vehicle being taken, anyone who saw it on the road between February 11 and 18 and anyone who saw the vehicle being left in Salisbury Road.

PC David Humphry said the roads involved are busy. "It is highly likely people could have witnessed the removal of the vehicle or it being parked in Salisbury Road," he said.

Please disregard a vehicle circulated last week as being of interest. T815WAN was reported as being seen on farm land looking for scrap. The vehicle did in fact belong to a person known to the estate who was looking for two lost dogs. The informant did not know that a new vehicle had been purchased so reported it as suspicious.

Last Thursday I attended Head Quarters in Winchester for a meeting with Assistant Chief Constable Pryde to discuss counter terrorism in rural communities. Some exiting ideas were discussed and work will be undertaken in the coming weeks to develop a proposal for his consideration.

On Wednesday morning the team conducted a Stay Under 40 speeding operation on the B3054 at Crockford Clump car park. In just under one hour eight vehicles were caught at speeds between 48 – 55 miles per hour. One vehicle also had no MOT.

On Wednesday afternoon the team assisted with searches for the missing teenager, Ross Haughey.

This morning I met with Sergeant Russell Hodges and Inspector Paul Pressley. Russell has taken over from Stuart Tripp as the Northern Country Watch Sergeant and we are looking forward to working with him in the future.


Sergeant 483 Hubble.

Hare Coursing

Hare coursing is a blood sport and is a completely banned and an illegal activity, yet it unfortunately remains a problem as recently highlighted in Wiltshire.

The Hunting Act 2004 made hare coursing illegal and anyone convicted of the offence can be fined up to £5,000 by a Magistrates’ Court.

The most obvious sign is a group of vehicles parked in a rural area perhaps by a gateway to farmland, on a grass verge, on a farm track or bridle path. There will usually be estate cars, four wheel drives or vans. They may contain evidence of dogs inside – such as muddy paw prints and dog hair.

Hare coursers are criminals and give no consideration to landowners’ property and crops. They often have a sophisticated information networks and knowledge of rural areas and they invariably know about vulnerable properties in the area, short cuts, and escape routes.

Violent confrontations can occur when participants are approached by landowners or their employees and this means that rural communities can feel very intimidated by hare coursers in their area.

If you see an event taking place the advice would be not to approach the participants but contact the police immediately on 101.

Kind regards, and stay safe.
