Witness appeal after lead and copper stolen from properties being refurbished in Bulford

Alert message sent 23/03/2021 13:07:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We are appealing for witnesses after lead and copper were stolen from three properties being refurbished in Bulford.

Three unoccupied houses in Milston Road were broken into at some point over the weekend (21 and 22 March) and copper tanks and piping, as well as lead from the top of the garages, were stolen.

There was also a considerable amount of damage caused by the fact that the water was let out of the tanks.

PC Lyndsey Smith, from the Amesbury Area Community Policing Team, said: “Although these houses are currently unoccupied they are being refurbished and these burglaries have caused a considerable amount of disruption and frustration.

“Due to the fact that the copper tanks were removed, the offender or offenders would have been in the properties for a considerable amount of time, so there is a possibility that passers-by will have noticed something.

“If you were in the area of the weekend and witnessed anything suspicious then please call us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call PC Smith on 101, quoting crime reference 54210027027. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
