  1. Kevin Hill of Tarbock Road, Speke, Liverpool has been jailed for supplying cocaine and possessing offensive weapons. The 48-year-old from Liverpool was sentenced yesterday (Monday 13 June) at Worcester Crown Court. He was sentenced to nine years in prison. An investigation by West Mercia Police with support from Merseyside Police found that between May 2021 and February 2022 Hill led a Liverpool based group responsible for the distribution of wholesale amounts of cocaine into Herefordshire. Kevin Hill took over this enterprise from his twin brother, Keith Hill of Ridgemoor Road, Leominster, who is himself serving a nine year jail sentence after being sentenced at Worcester Crown Court in August 2021. Both individuals were at the pinnacle of this offending organisation. It is conservatively estimated that he distributed in excess of a kilo of cocaine, however in reality the figures involved are likely to be more significant. The police operation gathered significant mobile phone evidence which implicated Hill on a large scale. He pleaded guilty and received a reduced sentence. Initially Hill had said that he was a dog breeder and received payments marked up for the sale of XL Bully dogs, this was easily disproven. Evidence was gathered that demonstrated Hill had a number of contacts in and around Herefordshire, who were themselves dealers in their own right, this included 23 year old Callum Smith of Princess Avenue, Hereford who was sentenced to six years seven months and 32 year old Nathaniel Singleton of Mortimer Street, Leominster, who was sentenced to 33 months. On 13 October 2021 Nathaniel Singleton was arrested and found in possession of £24,000 of cocaine. On 19 January 2022 Callum Smith was arrested and found in possession of several hundred pounds worth of cocaine. These drugs were supplied by Kevin Hill. Detective Sergeant Jamie Bullock said: “People involved in this line of work should be mindful that at no point did we seize drugs or money from Kevin Hill. Those in a similar position should use this sentence as a warning that they could be next. “Anyone with any concerns about potential drug crime is urged to get in touch. We act on all reports we receive.” You can call 101 or visit https://www.westmercia.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/

  4. Cyclists on Footpaths! Should cyclists be allowed on footpaths? I ask the question because this morning I was walking along Belmont Avenue and a chap on a bike knocked into me from behind and almost knocked me to the floor as he came speeding past me on along the footpath on his bike. He turned around and shouted sorry pal but to be honest it not only startled me but I will probably have a bruise on my arm. I could have easily lost my balance and fallen into the road. I thought riding a bicycle on a footpath was illegal? I appreciate that some people do not like riding on the roads and most of the councils in the country are implementing cycle lanes where they can but if the roads are narrow in the first place it makes it very difficult. I always remeber growing up that the police would tell you to get off your bike and walk on footpaths but that does not appear to happen anymore. I have just seen this article on Sky news
  5. Eight men have received prison sentences for Courier Fraud offences they committed in Herefordshire, Shropshire and Sutton Coldfield in 2019. The group of offenders based in London targeted elderly and vulnerable members of the public pretending to be police officers, encouraging them to help an investigation by withdrawing money from the bank. Couriers would then be arranged, also pretending to be police officers, to attend the victims’ addresses and collect the money. Two were arrested following a high speed pursuit in Hereford in which they rammed police cars and other vehicles before they were detained. More than 200 victims were identified by police, with many more targeted by the and with over 1,000 unique and known landline numbers contacted. The benefit amount of the conspiracy, for money stolen or attempted to have been stolen was just under £200,000. Full details 👉 https://bit.ly/3442FQQ
  6. Police discovered around 160 cannabis plants with a street value of more than £130,000 at a property in Newent yesterday. A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of producing a controlled drug and cultivating cannabis. The find was dismantled after it was made safe by electricians. Inspector Nick Cook said: “Drugs can have a devastating impact on people’s lives and often go hand in hand with other types of criminality. “We will continue to proactively target these operations and welcome any information you have about this kind of activity in the community. People coming and going at all times and properties with blacked out windows are just a couple of things to look out for. “If you believe drug activity is taking place you can report this to us on our website or through Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.” A man has been charged and is due to appear in court later this month. Anyone with additional information about this latest drugs incident can contact police through this website, quoting incident 346 of 9 November: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/contact/af/contact-us/us/a-crime-that-has-already-been-reported/. Alternatively, you can also call police on 101.
  7. On 18 September 2020 at Hereford Magistrates Court, Mrs Pearl Smith (51) of Oak Crescent, Clehonger pleaded guilty of failing to transfer her waste to an authorised person and secure the transfer with a written description of the waste. In the case taken by Herefordshire Council’s Community Protection Team, Mrs Smith received a fine of £320, victim surcharge of £32 and a contribution towards costs of £150. In this case, six household bags full of waste and a shopping trolley were found dumped in Newton brook which runs along Waterfield Road in Hereford in March 2019. Evidence found in the bags led officers to Ms Smith who failed to co-operate with the investigation and provide an account of how her waste became fly tipped. At the hearing, Smith accepted that she had failed to transfer the waste to an authorised person and had therefore failed in her Duty of Care.David Hough, Herefordshire Council’s Trading Standards Service Manager, said:

  13. Antisocial Behaviour: This is the Spur Retail Park in Holmer Road Hereford this morning. This is the mess that is here virtually every morning from people’s behaviour from the night before. West Mercia Police / Hereford Cops should be handing out regular fines to each of these culprits. This is not something new either, this has been going on for a few years. This is quite frankly disgusting behaviour, why can’t people gather quietly and dispose of their litter properly? We even have wooden pallets being thrown around the car park now.. Please Note: After we took these photographs and video we collected all the litter and put it in the bin correctly and the pallets were also removed and put in a safe area. Herefordshire Council

  20. Resident failed in their ‘duty of care’ when household waste was fly tipped A resident from Putson has been fined for illegally disposing of waste in a case taken to Hereford Magistrates’ Court by Herefordshire Council’s Community Protection Team. The individual was sentenced on Tuesday 17 September 2019 after pleading guilty to failing to secure the transfer of waste with a written description of the waste. They were sentenced to a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay costs of £600 plus a £20 victim surcharge. The court heard that unwanted furniture was removed from the home address of the Putson resident by a waste collector. The individual failed to obtain a waste transfer note and check that a waste carrier’s licence was held. On 28 December 2018, the removed furniture was found fly tipped on the roadside embankment of the country lane which sits between the A49 and A465 in Hereford. A disgusted resident posted a photograph of the fly tipping on social media and an investigation by the council’s Community Protection Team led to the identification of the Putson resident who failed to provide a detailed account as to who had collected the furniture. Without information about the waste collector, there was not enough evidence to complete a full investigation. David Hough, Herefordshire Council’s Trading Standards Service Manager said: Residents can call 01432 260051 to arrange a kerbside collection of bulky items from Herefordshire Council which costs £25 per three items (fridges or freezers cost £20 per item). Herefordshire Council’s Community Protection Team will investigate fly tipping which is reported by calling 01432 261761 or online at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/flytipping

  22. We have noticed all this new graffiti locally, some will claim it is street art but the bottom line here is that this is plain criminal damage to someones property and this criminal damage costing the taxpayer thousands of pounds for the local council to clean it up.
