Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

This week’s Friday Op Blitz was assigned to PC Holt and PCSO Gilling. Sub-zero temperatures and the threat of more snow or even frozen rain meant that we were not expecting too much in the way of youths being out and about. Sure enough we checked the usual areas, The Meridian centre, Huggets Green and Riverside and Dacre Road car park, and apart from a small group of youths who swiftly exited the Meridian centre there was nobody to be seen.

There had been a report early in the evening of youths throwing snowballs from the top of Dacre Road car park. We arrived at the car park at 7:30pm and thought our luck was in as we saw two shadowy figures scooping snow from the roof of a parked car and throwing snow at each other. However, as we swooped to deliver a scolding, it was only to find that it was a father and son clearing snow from their own car. Our checks took us to Broad Street and The Crouch in Seaford, once again there were no persons evident in the usual hide outs.

The highlight of our evening was a slight diversion to the report of a loose horse on the C7. We arrived to find Jester, a beautiful Piebald, who had been happily corralled into the driveway of a neighbour. He was very calm and content, and the owner of the house was happy to supply carrots whilst we waited for the owners. This was a step up from the previous evening when we came across two loose dogs running free on the same stretch of road and we ended up with rather a huge Bull Mastiff and an overexcited boxer in our patrol car! They were soon reunited with their owner. Please everyone keep control of your pets as we would hate to see anything happen to them or anyone else on this busy road.

Due to a serious incident occurring on Saturday, officers were unable to complete Lewes Op Blitz.
