Two arrested in connection with theft of greyhound statues from Wilton pub
Two people have been arrested in connection with the theft of two greyhound statues outside a pub in Wilton.

We received a call at 7.45pm on  Tues 18th December about the theft of greyhound statues from outside the front of the Greyhound Inn, in Wilton.

Officers were given a description of a silver Peugeot van which had been seen at the scene, and officers from Wiltshire South Community Policing Team recognised it and successfully located the vehicle at an address in Heath Road.

A 35-year-old man from Harnham was arrested on suspicion of theft.

A 22-year-old man from Salisbury was arrested on suspicion of theft, possession of Class A drugs and possession of Class B drugs.

The van has been seized as part of our enquiries.

Community Co-ordinator Matt Holland, from Wiltshire South CPT, said: "This incident proves how vital good local knowledge and intelligence is in swiftly tracing suspects and making arrests.

"We would now urge anyone who has information about the theft to contact police.

"We have not yet located the greyhound statues so would specifically like to hear from anyone who has seen them or knows where they are."

You should call Wiltshire South CPT on 101, quoting crime reference 54180119670. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
