It is not the first time he has been recorded taking photographs of our house, but in the past it has been from maybe 200 yards away in an adjacent field. Today he was outside the front of the house, directing his camera into our lounge window. From the CCTV he took three photographs.
I'm sorry? He stopped on his bicycle and took out a compact digital camera to take the photographs? I don't understand what the council have to do with it?
This is the first time we have caught him taking pictures so close to the house, but we have several CCTV clips of him taking pictures from the field.
Are you still there???
I assume that this conversation has been closed for some reason? I also assume that no money will be take from my account.
The police say they have to speak to him before deciding if they can do anything. If he says he was photographing a butterfly for example, we understand they wont take action. I need to know if he is an offence before the police see him.
All of the above will cost a lot of money, which we do not have. The civil case we are taking out against him for intentional flooding, is covered by our legal insurance but we are not covered for harassment - this is why he continues to get away with his constant bullying tactics. Given his history, shouldn't the police be able to do something to stop him? This would at least give him a fright (although he appears to have little respect for the police).
Final question please: The police have said previously that they cannot prosecute him for harassment unless he pulls a gun (or some such physical threat). Incidentally, in 2007 he fired into our workshop but the police took no action because they said phorensic investigation on the bullet would be too expensive....he still has a firearms license and holds several guns. Are you saying that as this is (obviously) harassment they should be taking action against him?
Yes, thank you.
