NEWSFLASH @6:00pm 14th October. South Anston Post Office and shop was robbed earlier today by four masked men. It is understood one man has been arrested and the Police Helicopter, Armed Police and Officers with sniffer dogs are hunting for the other members of the gang.
Yesterday (Saturday) robbers broke into a family home in Lindrick Common. There are no further details at the present time.
It is safe to say that because our Police and Crime Commissioner-Dr.Alan Billings-forced the closure of Dinnington Police Station gangs of thugs know they have at least 15 minutes to escape before Police officers stationed at Maltby arrive on scene.
How is your reorganisation of our local area Police force (‘for efficiency’) going Dr.Billings?
UPDATE: In the past 7 days there have been five robberies in Dinnington. Tesco’s,Domino’s Pizza, Salvation Army Charity shop,Bluebell Wood Hospice (Power tools stolen from a shed) and Screwfix where a number of power tools were also stolen. Stealing is bad enough but to steal from a hospice and a charity shop is beyond despicable. The lowlife scum responsible for these robberies deserve to be severely punished but our liberal judiciary will probably give them just a slap on the wrist.
Domino’s Pizza was robbed at knifepoint yesterday evening.
Earlier a man was robbed of cash by a knife wielding thug.
Questions for Labour stooge Dr.Alan Billings South Yorks. Police and Crime Commissioner; How did closing Dinnington Police Station ‘improve operational efficiency’? Dr.Billings salary is £85,000 pa. plus two highly paid assistants yet Billings claims we cannot have more police officers because of -you’ve guessed it-‘the cuts’. Piffle.
What Billings has done is left Anston and Dinnington exposed to more crime whilst at the same time working in very comfortable office and putting more pressures on our understaffed and under equipped police officers. He stated in his election leaflet “I am not a politician”. From 1981-1986 there was a Sheffield City Labour Councillor called Alan Billings, who was the Deputy Leader at the time that David Blunkett notoriously was Leader of Sheffield City Council. Mr Billings should tell us exactly on what date he stopped being a politician, as the post of South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner is a political position.
Remind us again Dr.Billings, Just how effective is South Yorkshire Police on your watch?
ADDENDUM. Dr.Billings and his immediate staff are given approximately £180,000 per annum in pension contributions. This money is taken from the overall police budget, it is not extra money. £180,000 would pay for at least four extra police officers and their equipment. A pension yes but not over inflated feather bedded payments for failure.
