Two jailed in crime crackdown
SUFFOLK: Two men have been jailed as Suffolk police continue to crackdown on crime and anti-social behaviour.
A 21-year old has been jailed for 14 weeks after admitting threatening behaviour in an incident in Main Street in Leiston in the early hours of June 5 and on a separate charge assault by beating following another incident in Leiston.
While a 17-year-old has been given a four month detention and training order for possession of an offensive weapon – a baseball bat – following an incident in King Georges Avenue on July 17.
The jailings come as police continue to target those involved in crime and anti-social behaviour in Leiston – and introduced SmartWater as an additional deterrent.
Launched in Lowestoft in December, SmartWater is a colourless odourless liquid that forensically links burglars to crime scenes and stolen property.

It can be used to invisibly mark property and now households in Leiston will be offered the opportunity to have items marked.
The pilot in Lowestoft – the first of its kind in Suffolk – was a success with more than 700 households taking up the offer to have their property marked and residents in Leiston are to be given more details about the scheme.

Sergeant Mark Beresford, of Leiston and Aldeburgh Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “SmartWater can only be seen under ultraviolet light and it doesn’t harm property but the liquid bears a chemical code that is unique, permanent and can be traced back to the home it came from.”
