Alert message sent 04/03/2019 16:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We are appealing for information after power tools were stolen from a Wiltshire Council depot in Salisbury.

The depot in Stephenson Road, Churchfields, was broken into some time between 10am yesterday (Sunday 3 March 2019) and 6.30am this morning (Monday 4 March 2019).

The offenders gained access by cutting through the perimeter fence and then bending the steel panelling of the storage building, before cutting through steel caging with an angle grinder.

Five items were stolen, worth a total of between £2,000 and £3,000.

They were:
Two Stihl strimmers
One Stihl hand leaf blower
Two Stihl back leaf blowers

A photograph of items similar to those stolen is attached to this release.

PC Karl Baldwin, from Wiltshire South Community Policing Team, said: “We are asking for anyone with information to come forward.

“Were you in the area overnight and perhaps witnessed something suspicious? Or have you seen these tools for sale, perhaps advertised on social media?

“If you can help then please contact police.”

Anyone with information should call PC Baldwin on 101, quoting crime reference 54190021615. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
