Staddle stones theft - witness appeal

Alert message sent 24/07/2017 12:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Wiltshire Police is appealing for witnesses after a number of staddle stones were stolen from an address on Nunton Drove, Nunton, near Salisbury.

Around 11pm on Wednesday 12 July the residents of the property were woken up by the sound of their staddle stones being moved.

They looked out of their window to see three people loading three staddle stones on to a flat-bed truck; once they realised they had been spotted they drove off with one of the stones falling off as the vehicle left. 

PC Trevor Morgan said: "We'd like to hear from anyone who may have seen a vehicle like this or anyone acting suspiciously in this area before or after the theft."

To improve the security in and around your home we are asking householders to remember the following advice particular to this case: 

• Trim back any plants and hedges at the front of your property to no higher than 1 metre to remove hiding places

• Always report any suspicious activity, note any vehicle registrations, descriptions of persons involved and direction of travel

• Use a timer to set lights to mimic your usual activity when you are not at home

 • Make sure any bolts are low enough so they cannot be opened by reaching over the top of the gate

 If you can help with our enquiries please contact PC Trevor Morgan on 101 or anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
