altFollowing a series of thefts, an assault on a local  businessman and an attempted break in, an Uppingham Businessman has offered a £500 reward for information leading to the identification and successful prosecution of the individual who during the night tried to break into the Rutland Antiques Gallery last week.

The move follows mounting concern over repeated thefts from the town's supermarket which the police are investigating and have made arrests. Regrettably this has not deterred out of town criminals from seeing the supermarket as an easy target and the thefts have continued. Sunday July 2nd saw the situation deteriorate further with a further theft followed by a chase and an assault on a local trader. The incident is thought to have been captured on CCTV.  

Expressing frustration at the crime wave that has hit the town Ron Simpson, Chair of the Uppingham Business Forum said, "It is only a few days since I met with Neighbourhood Beat Officer PC Joshua Ace who is clearly trying to do as much as is possible with the resources available to him. It would appear however that Leicestershire Police need to allocate more resources to Uppingham to resolve the current situation. If the force of law and order are not able to address the  problem then the town will have to do more to protect itself. Perhaps both are required. I would prefer the  Chief Constable to review the now lengthy series of incidents and allocate additional help to the beat team.  It is also hoped the Police and Crime Commissioner will look closely at the town's problems at this difficult time."
