SUSPECTED drug-dealing in the car park at Ecchinswell Village Hall was among crimes reported to police last month.

According to Hampshire Constabulary, 11 crimes were reported during November in an area including Ashmansworth, East Woodhay, Highclere, Burghclere, Newtown, Litchfield, Ecchinswell and Sydmonton, St Mary Bourne and Stoke.

Two incidents of anti-social behaviour included a report of suspicious activity in the car park at Ecchinswell Village Hall, possibly related to drug dealing.

High-visibility patrols had been carried out and a vehicle involved was found abandoned in a nearby village.

The second incident of anti-social behaviour involved a complaint from a Bishops Green resident, accusing another resident of aiming fireworks at their house.

Three burglaries included a Newtown incident in which electronic gates had been opened after the power supply was cut, before burglars entered the garage and stables.

In North Sydmonton, burglars broke into an outbuilding after snipping the lock and stole a strimmer.

The third burglary, in Ecchinswell, saw a lock broken off an outbuilding and two cans of petrol stolen.

One incident of criminal damage involved damage to a vehicle overnight.

Two assaults included a male driver becoming verbally aggressive towards two other women drivers at a Burghclere school.

The other assault involved a verbal altercation between two people in St Mary Bourne, with one pushed and another punched in the face.

Three domestic disputes included unwanted text messages received from an ex-partner in Bishops Green, and a verbal altercation between a Penwood couple while under the influence of alcohol.

The third was a verbal domestic incident in Bishops Green.

Anyone with information about the above incidents should telephone the police non emergency telephone number, 101.
