The public can also assist in deterring criminal activity by reporting any suspicious individuals or activity to police at the earliest opportunity.”Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the Middle Road, Southampton area around 9.45pm yesterday or anyone with any information to contact the Somerset Criminal Investigation Unit on 234-1010.
