It's #FindItFriday again. Do you know who this jewellery belongs to? Is it yours? We believe they items were stolen sometime last summer and taken to a pawn brokers in Yeovil. If you recognise them then please contact PC Jim Card via the 101 number. We would like to return them to their rightful owners - and yes Facebookers, you will need to be able to prove they're yours before we hand them over! ;-)
Three men and three women have been arrested for a number of offences including possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and being concerned in the supply of drugs after we carried out a drugs warrant in the Holway area of Taunton today, 23/02.
One of the women was also arrested for a breach of an injunction issued by her housing provider, Knightstone Housing Association, and was taken straight to Crown Court.
Chief Inspector Lisa Simpson, Local Policing Commander for W...est Somerset, said: “My officers carried out the search warrant today as a direct result of information being provided by the community about suspected drug dealing. So first of all I want to say thank you to the public for getting in touch.
“This is an excellent demonstration of the police and the public working together to tackle a difficult and complex issue. The community have made it clear they don’t want it in their neighbourhood, I won’t tolerate it and my officers will take proactive action to deal with it. Please keep talking to us, either directly or via Crimestoppers."

Can you help our investigation after precious possessions were stolen from an elderly man's home in Yate around lunchtime on Thursday 16 February? http://socsi....in/n2xZE

We're investigating after a woman was indecently assaulted as she walked on the cycle path near Victoria Bridge, Bath. http://socsi.in/9BeBd
It happened at about 7.50am on Wednesday 22 February. A man touched her bottom as he cycled past, heading towards Bath. He was white, in his 40s, of slim, athletic build. He wore a yellow bike helmet and a red jacket and rode a black bike with dropped handlebars.
If you can help please get in touch online http://socsi.in/tZ0B8, or by cal...ling 101, quoting reference 5217039944.
If any other women have had a similar experience recently we'd ask them to report it to us. This behaviour is not acceptable and we want to hear about it. We’d like to see people who use the cycle path looking out for one another and getting in touch with us about anyone behaving suspiciously
Anyone assaulted in this way while using the cycle path is encouraged to get to somewhere busy and call us as soon as they can with a description of the person and which way they went.

Here is our statement regarding the Judah Adunbi investigation:
Head of Professional Standards at Avon and Somerset police Richard Corrigan said: “Today, the IPCC announced that it has served two officers with gross misconduct notices regarding the incident involving Mr Adunbi.
"We’re continuing to co-operate with them as their investigation progresses but cannot comment on the circumstances surrounding the incident as a consequence of the IPCC involvement....
“Chief Constable Andy Marsh has promised that we will discuss the matter fully and publicly once the IPCC investigation has concluded.”
We arrested two people in connection with a 'rogue trading' incident in Henleaze in Bristol on Monday. Bank staff called us when an elderly man, who was visibly agitated, asked to withdraw a large amount of cash. He told staff the money was for men who were waiting at his house demanding payment for clearing his gutters.
Rogue traders are criminals who take advantage of people by using high-pressure sales techniques. Their work is often overpriced, poor quality or not requi...red at all. They often prey on elderly or vulnerable people.
Please look out for your neighbours and relatives, sometimes all it takes is a simple 'hello' and a smile to make someone feel safer and less isolated.
More details and advice on staying safe here:
Do you live in Horfield, Bishopston, Henleaze or Filton? Please make sure your sheds and garages are secure as there have been a number of break-ins over the past few months. Thieves are looking for 🚲's and 🔧 🔨's or anything else of value 💰.
PCSO Charlotte Thompson and her team have hand delivered 450 letters to homes in the area this week, explaining how people can make their outbuildings more secure. 👮 🔐
