Witness appeal after theft of tools in East Dorset

16 April 2018
Officers are issuing CCTV footage of two suspects after a number of petrol tools were stolen from an outbuilding in East Dorset.

The tools were taken from a secure building at the Avon Heath Country Park at around 8.20pm on Wednesday 4 April 2018.

The offenders gained entry via a rear wooden door and then used a grinder to cut a padlock and enter an internal metal shed before removing the tools and leaving the premises.

Police Constable Ted Carlton, of East Dorset police, said: “We are continuing to make enquiries into this incident and are making efforts to establish exactly what was taken.

“We have carried out CCTV enquiries and as a result I am issuing images of two suspects in the hope that someone might recognise them.

“I am also appealing for anyone with any information that could assist with our investigation, or who has been offered petrol tools for sale in unusual circumstances, to contact police.
