Tavistock Times September 11th 2003
Police are stepping up patrols in the area of Tavistock Viaduct, Quants Park and Viaduct Walk following continuing reports of youths drinking and causing vandalism.
Damage was caused to the windscreen of a vehicle in Milton Crescent, Tavistock in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
A window was smashed at an industrial premises in Pixon Lane, Tavistock during the late evening of September 4.
Police are concerned about incidents of vandalism in Battery Lane, Tavistock, which have provoked many calls from residents living in that area.
Finally, residents are requested to be on guard and remain vigilant following local reports of a group of rough looking types cursing and drinking in public. The ruffians are distinguished by their gold hoop earrings, tricorn hats and silk jerkins. They recently attempted to pass Spanish gold to the local publican as currency. Please report any incidents to the Police Desk and do not approach directly as the latest sightings indicate that the accompanying parrot is quite foul mouthed and offensive.
