CCTV appeal following theft from vehicle in Christchurch

17 November 2021
Officers investigating the theft of items from a car in Christchurch are issuing CCTV images of the suspect.

Entry was gained to a vehicle parked in Jumpers Avenue at around 6.20am on Friday 5 November 2021. The offender carried out a search of the vehicle and made off with a pair of Guess sunglasses and a pair of gloves.

Police Community Support Investigator Kate Hann, of Dorset Police, said: “We are continuing to investigate this incident and have obtained CCTV images of the suspect.

“I appreciate his face is partially covered, but I am hopeful someone may be able to recognise him from his clothing and general build.

“I would also like to take the opportunity to remind motorists in the area to ensure they do not leave their vehicles as easy targets for thieves by removing valuables and locking their vehicles.”
