Welcome to Walsall Local Policing Unit
On several occasions over the last month the public of Walsall have again shown how important community information is to local police.
It was through the quick wits one local resident in particular that led to the arrest and charge of a 42-year-old man reported to have committed 24 offences of fraud in the Black Country. The man was arrested after a member of the public recognised him from a media appeal and immediately alerted the police.
A further four arrests for burglary were made recently following a call from local residents reporting a crime in progress. Officers were called to Coronation Road in Pelsall following a report that four young men were breaking into a building site and a neighbouring shed.
The men made their escape across a nearby field with a wheelbarrow and an electric generator. But thanks to the early call from the public, officers soon caught up with the suspects who had stopped to start the generator and made the arrests.
A 16 year old, a 19 year old and two 18 year old men have since been released on police bail.
If you see any crime or know about criminal activity in your area, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Walsall Police by calling 101.
As the days grow longer and warmer we want to ensure everyone enjoys the better weather. Although burglary and vehicle crime continues to fall in Walsall there are still steps you can take to protect your property.
Don’t forget to lock your doors and windows when you leave the house and make sure garden tools are locked away in garages and sheds when you have finished using them.
