CCTV appeal to identify potential witness following vehicle crime in Colehill

20 July 2021
Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward after vehicles were broken into in Colehill – with an image released of the vehicle of a possible witness.

Dorset Police received reports on Wednesday 14 July 2021 that four vehicles had been broken into on Lonnen Road. It is believed the incidents occurred at around 5.45am.

Nothing was stolen from any of the vehicles.

Shortly after the reported time of the incidents, three male young people were seen leaving the area.

Police Constable Kate Schofield, of Dorset Police, said: “Following enquiries, I have obtained an image of a blue van that was seen driving along Lonnen Road around the relevant time.

“I am really keen to speak to the driver as they may have witnessed what happened or have important information to assist my enquiries. I would like to stress that they are purely being sought as a witness.

“I would also urge anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity in the vicinity to please come forward and report it to Dorset Police.

“Finally, if anyone witnessed three young people in the area or has any information to help my investigation, please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210112442. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or call Freephone 0800 555 111.
