Man arrested in Bradley Stoke prowler enquiry

Police Car

Police investigating multiple reports of a prowler in Bradley Stoke and Little Stoke say they have arrested a man.

A statement posted today on the Avon and Somerset Police website reads:

“A 30-year-old man from Bradley Stoke was arrested shortly after 8pm last night, Thursday 26th January, by neighbourhood PC Claire Fletcher.”

“He remains in police custody today, Friday 27th January.”

The move comes after police said they had been called to investigate two separate reports of an early morning prowler in Elm Close (Little Stoke) and Oaktree Crescent on Wednesday 18th January.

Local police have said they arrested a man in connection with a similar incident in Bradley Stoke in November 2011 but following further enquiries he was released without charge.

An article in the The Bristol Evening Post earlier this week claimed a prowler was scared off after he was seen “trying to peer into a house” in the vicinity of Brook Way.

  4. Well done to our local police!
    To our local council however… Does this mean due to crime rates rising are we not going to be plunged into darkness every night anymore, by you switching off our street lights so we can actually see now if someones in our gardens & if someones trying to break into our houses/cars etc????
    Or are we going to get a reduction in our council tax instead???

  5. No the street lights won’t be turned back on. It was 6.45 when a prowler was spotted (see. Previous report-). The lights were on!!!
