AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE ABOVE THERE WAS VERY LITTLE REPORTED CRIME DURING MARCH WHICH LEAVES JUST ENOUGH ROOM ON THE BULLETIN FOR A BAD JOKE.

A policeman is driving along the road when he gets an urgent message on his radio telling him there has been a dead body found in an ice cream van just down the road.
He rushes to the scene where he discovers a man's body, with chocolate flakes up each nostril, raspberry sauce all over his head and he is covered from head to toe in hundreds of thousands of sprinkles.
A puzzled onlooker asks the policeman what he thinks has happened, to which the policeman replies:
" It looks like he's topped himself." …………………………………….(I did warn you!)

 

If anyone has any information about any of the above listed crimes please give us a ring at Tisbury or Mere. Your help could lead to the apprehension of offenders or the recovery of property. If you would prefer to pass information anonymously (rewards are available) ring CRIMESTOPPERS.
