Police launch appeal after metal theft in Bridport
4:00pm Monday 15th October 2012 in News
POLICE are appealing for information after metal fencing worth more than £1,000 was stolen from a business in Bridport.
Officers in the town want to trace the stolen goods and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
The galvanised wire stock fencing was stolen from a commercial yard at a trading estate in Bridport between 2.30am and 2.45am on Friday, October 12.
Around 24 rolls of the metal wire fencing were stolen which are valued at over £1,000 in total.
PC Sean Cannon, of Bridport Police, said: “The theft of these expensive items has caused great financial loss to the proprietor.
“The yard gate was forced open and the offenders used a saloon vehicle to take the fencing away.
“I am particularly keen to trace the stolen property and speak to anyone who has been offered fencing in strange circumstances, possibly for an unusually low cash sum.”
He added: “I would ask that anyone who has recently contracted someone to install such fencing should ensure they establish exactly where it has come from and insist on seeing an invoice.
“If they are at all suspicious, I would ask they contact us on 101.”
Anyone with information can call Dorset Police on 101 quoting incident number 12:55 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
