Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We’re appealing for witnesses following a theft from a van in Westbury on Monday (01/02).

The incident occurred at approximately 9.30pm on Newfield Close where it is reported that three suspects have removed the two side, dropdown panels from a Volkswagen Transporter van before putting them in a vehicle and driving away.

A dark coloured car, believed to be connected with this incident, was seen at 9.37pm reversing on Oldfield Road and into Newfield Close before then exiting back onto Oldfield Road.

PC Adam Woods said: “The vehicle reversed with no lights on and with the boot open and we are asking for any members of public who may have spotted this suspicious behaviour to contact us.

“There were a number of vehicles who drove past this car at the time of it carrying out this manoeuvre and we’d ask you to call 101 and quote crime reference number 5421001840.

“If you have any other information relating to this incident, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.”
