Scrap metal dealers

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Neighbourhood Watch

Good morning.


This is a community awareness notice brought to you by PCSO Jad from Horncastle NPT.


We have had a number of reports in the past few days of metal scrap dealers in the local area.


In one incident, a rusty metal tub was removed from a garden between the hours of 5am and 9am. In other cases, the dealer(s) on the land owners property, where challenged by the home owner. Dealer(s) left without fuss.


If someone, you do not know comes onto your property or rings the door bell and you feel uncertain of their intentions, do not open the door. If safe to do so, take video and try to note down person(s) description, car details and registration.  Now immediately call police on 101.


Alternatively, if you have witnessed, and/or heard anything suspicious, and have information, again please call 101.

Thank you.


Thank you.
