Police are to step up patrols and searches in Billingborough after what they descibed as “a continuous pattern of anti-social-behaviour and criminal damage” in the village.
A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “Over the last two months, police have received reports of graffiti, cannabis being smoked, damage to inset wall garden lights, number plate SH52 KUY was stolen, solar lights damaged, as well as reports of drunken youths in the vicinity of Billingborough.
“There have also been sightings of persons in the recreation ground during the early hours, as well as drivers using their vehicles in an anti-social manner in the car park.
“But not only has the recreation ground and playing fields seen a continuous pattern of anti-social-behaviour, but the village has too, particularly in Horbling Road.
“Police are carrying out extra patrols in the areas and will be using their powers to conduct stop checks and, if necessary, searches of any persons acting suspiciously.
“There will also be vehicle searches carried out, with any offences robustly dealt with.”
Anyone with information should call 101.
