Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Last Friday the Blitz team were out patrolling identified hotspots across Wealden. Officers carried out foot patrol in Uckfield town centre and the Fernley Park estate; liaising with local businesses and residents who have previously been affected by anti-social behaviour. We also did some home visits to check our repeat offenders were at home when they were supposed to be.

Some beer were confiscated from youths in Rotherfield Road, Crowbourgh, but there was no specific problems reported in the area. Later in the evening, around 11pm, we received a report of teenagers causing a nuisance and throwing things around in Morrison’s car park. The youths had dispersed prior to our arrival and there was no damage caused.

We received calls concerning a group of youths knocking over dustbins around Ghyll Road in Heathfield. We also understand there was a group of youths drinking and being noisy in Jubilee Park and we will try to increase are patrols in the area this weekend.

We didn’t run an Op Blitz on Saturday, but are aware that a number of vehicles had their aerials stolen in Harcourt Road, Uckfield, and a vehicle was damaged in Old Common Way. We’re continuing with enquires and follow-up actions regarding the number of cars that have been damaged in the Uckfield area.
