Youths to ‘reconcile with community’
Vandals behind a recent spate of egg-throwing in Ottery will be punished through restorative justice.
PCSO Maria Clapp reported this week that youths who targeted properties and vehicles with their antics have been tracked down and will now begin a process of ‘reconciling with the community’.
Crime in the parish was down overall in January 2016, with 10 incidents recorded compared to 12 during the same period in 2015.
A break-in at the Hospiscare shop in Broad Street contributed to the figures, when a burglar broke through a padlocked gate and forced the back door to gain entry to the premises.
