Recovered items – public appeal to find owners

15 September 2016
Police in Poole are appealing for the public’s help to find the owners of a number of items that have been recovered in the town – with photos being released.

The items were found inside a vehicle and a property on Friday 2 September 2016 as part of an ongoing investigation.

They include various hand tools, silverware, jewellery and a number of unique items.

Among the goods are an antique clock, a Honda GX 160 motor with a ‘skidz’ sticker on it, 18 gaming headsets with a yellow shop label on each box and an antique Dorset County Fire Service helmet. 

Police Constable John Upsher, of Poole police, said: “We suspect these recovered items may have been stolen from private and business addresses and vehicles and I am keen to reunite them with their owners.

“I am releasing images of some of these items and I would urge anyone who recognises them or has had similar items stolen in recent months to please contact Dorset Police.”

A 44-year-old Poole man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and theft offences and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries until the middle of October 2016.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55160132559. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or via
