Help track down distinctive stolen boat
2:30pm Wednesday 8th August 2012 in Local News
THIEVES have stolen a distinctive boat from outside a house in North Dorset.
The white and blue Bonwitco 495 moulded plastic fishing vessel was taken while mounted on a galvanised iron trailer parked outside Butlers House, Higher Street, Iwerne Minster, near Blandford.
It has a large Suzuki-branded engine on the rear and is quite distinctive in appearance, say marine officers who are investigating the theft which happened on July 30.
PC Richard White, of Portland Marine Section, said: “This theft has understandably caused a lot of distress and upset to the owners.
“I am keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident or may have information about the offender or the whereabouts of the boat and trailer.”
He said anyone who has been offered a boat for an unusually low price or in suspicious circumstances should also contact police.
Information to Dorset Police on 101.
