IT has been a busy few weeks tackling crime and disorder for members of the Caister Safer Neighbourhood Team.

Local intelligence led officers to an address in Scratby on October 8, where they found cannabis plants being cultivated. A 21 year old man was arrested and later released on police bail until December.

A patrol spoke to a rowdy group of youngsters who had congregated near the green in Ormesby on October 17. Officers pointed out that their behaviour had caused concern amongst local residents and the group was dispersed.

Youths causing a disturbance in a tent on Ormesby Green were also dealt with following a call from a member of the public.

Following reports of suspicious behaviour involving a white van close to Ormesby Infant School and Martham Junior School officers patrolled the area on October 15. Fortunately there was a legitimate reason for the van being in the area, but the public are always encouraged to report their concerns so they can be investigated.

On the same day officers stopped and spoke to a motorist in Ormesby following complaints about his driving. Following police checks he was found to be wanted for an unrelated offence and arrested.
