Burglary at Shrewton Recreation Hall - appeal for witnesses

Alert message sent 08/03/2019 11:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We’re appealing for information after a recreation hall was broken into in Shrewton.

Early this morning, officers were called to a report of a break-in at Shrewton Recreation Hall, located at the end of Mill Lane.

A large window at the hall had been broken during the burglary, and doors within the hall had also been damaged.

A charity box containing an unknown amount of money was stolen and taps in the kitchen area had been left on, causing damage to the building. 

PC Richard Boston said: “We have been carrying out enquiries in the area and we have established that a disturbance was heard at the scene between 11pm and midnight last night – people were heard running from the scene in the direction of Tanners Lane. 

“This was a completely mindless act – damage has been caused to a facility which is at the centre of the local community. I am sure a lot of the people who use the hall will be upset to hear this news. This type of behaviour is completely unacceptable and I am keen to hear from anyone who may have seen anybody, or any vehicles, in the area between 11pm and midnight which appeared suspicious or out of place.

“Our enquiries are ongoing at this stage and any help from the public to find those responsible would be much appreciated.”

Call 101 and quote crime reference number 54190023206. 

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
