Police Appeal for Information


The following is a Public Announcement from the Police Directorate:

St Helena Police are currently appealing to the public for information regarding two incidents that occurred during last weekend.

Castle Window

Damage was caused to one of The Castle windows facing onto the Terrace. This occurred sometime late on Saturday evening, 30 November 2019.

One of the windows was significantly damaged and this appears to have been a deliberate and reckless act by individual(s) unknown.

Rosemary Plain

A picnic bench at Rosemary Plain, St Paul’s, was damaged between the evening of Saturday, 30 November, and the early hours of Sunday, 1 December 2019.

Detective Sergeant, Liam Fuller, said:

“The picnic bench has unfortunately been completely destroyed which will be a significant loss to those who legitimately use the area for recreational purposes. On closer inspection, the bench may have been struck by a vehicle driving inappropriately off-road. If anyone has any information or has seen a vehicle with unexplained damage from over the weekend please contact the Police Service.”

If you have any information relating to either of these two incidents, regardless of how minor it may seem, please contact the St Helena Police via email: emergencycontrol@helanta.co.sh. Alternatively, you can call tel: 22626 quoting reference HEHN5174 (Castle window) or HEHN5238 (Picnic bench at Rosemary Plain) to speak with a Police Officer of your choice.
