Alert message sent 12/12/2019 17:09:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We're trying to reunite stolen goods with their rightful owners after five garages were burgled in one part of Swindon. 

A member of the public called us around 3pm on Tuesday 10 December, reporting several youths breaking in to garages in the Cranmore Avenue area.  

Officers attended and arrested two local boys who were caught standing next to a pile of suspected stolen goods. 

A 14-year-old and 16-year-old, arrested on suspicion of burglary, have now been released under investigation. 

PC Craig Head said:  "We would like the owners of the goods to come forward; they include an amount of alcohol, a fishing trolley, gazebo, a mountain bike and mountain bike frame and a selection of power tools. 
"We believe these items may have come from the burgled garages - if one of those was yours please check whether or not you are missing anything and if you are please call us on 101." 

Please quote crime reference number 54190122299 when contacting us.
