Arrest made in case of vile abuse discs
Police urge people to hand them in to officers
THAMES Valley Police have arrested a 35-yearold man from Hemel Hempstead on suspicion of distributing indecent images and possession of indecent images in Amersham.
The arrest, on Sunday morning, is in relation to the ongoing investigation into a number of discs found in streets and gardens of homes in Chesham and Amersham over the last week.
Chiltern and South Bucks CID strongly advise people not to upload the CDs to view the content but to hand them into police. It is understood they may contain religious warnings, offensive and illegal pornographic material and computer viruses.
The man is believed to have delivered discs in the area of Park Place, Plantation Road and Roundwood Road in Amersham.
Officers followed up with house to house enquiries today to retrieve any discs they may have been given.
Police have received several reports of discs during the last week left in flowerboxes/beds in The Spinney and Broad Street, Chesham, and Whielden Street, Amersham.
Investigating officer PC Bridgeworth from Chiltern and South Bucks Local CID, said: “I would urge anyone who receives, or finds, one of these discs not to open them on their computer or laptop, but to either contact us via 101 quoting URN 509 (13/9) or to hand it in to their nearest police station. The disc contains writing and a symbolic cross in black. I would like to thank the public for their continued help in this matter.”
The Bucks Advertiser/ Examiner asked a Rabbi to translate the words written on the front of the disc. The words were Hebrew and are believed to translate as ‘we are one’.
If anyone has any information about these discs and their distribution that could assist the police, no matter how small a detail this may seem, then please contact Chiltern and South Bucks Local CID via 101.
