Officers in Wareham are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward following a burglary at a flat in Wool near Wareham.

The incident occurred sometime between 7am and 7pm on Friday 21 December 2012 at a property on Lower Hillside Road.

The offenders forced their way through the front door of the flat and stole a large stamp collection, antique coins, cash and jewellery.

Police Constable Luke Davis, of Wareham police, said: “I am appealing to anyone with information about this burglary to get in contact with us.

“This theft has caused great distress to the victim, a local man aged 62.

“We believe there to be two offenders, both are described as white men, aged around 20, of skinny build and around five feet seven inches tall.

“One had brown cropped hair and was wearing a lumber style jacket with cream and brown checks, and the second wore dark clothing.

“I am keen to speak to anyone who may have seen two men matching these descriptions acting suspiciously in the area at the time of the incident.

“I would also urge anyone who maybe offered stamps or jewellery in suspicious circumstances or at unusually low prices to contact Dorset Police on the non-emergency number 101.”
