Stop Press: Smash and Grab

Posted by Deborah Courtnell

     Stockbridge seems to have become a Mecca for lowlife and criminals in November.

     The local police have released CCTV pictures of four men who stole from the Co-op between 4.10 pm and 4.22 pm on Wednesday 7 November and now they are appealing for further witnesses after thieves stole a bronze stag valued at £5,500 in a smash and grab raid on the Wykeham Gallery at about 2 am, Saturday, 24 November.

     According  to the police the thieves smashed the front window of the gallery and stole the bronze statue which formed part of the display.

      PC James Dalton, said: “I am appealing for anyone with any information about this incident to come forward.     ‘The statue is about 26 inches tall and is very heavy. It is likely to have required two people to lift it, or possibly a van or a similar vehicle to transport it in.    ‘I am keen to speak to anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the High Street area during the early hours of November 23, or anyone who has any other information that could assist our inquiry.’

Anyone with any information should contact PC Dalton at Andover police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers, the charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
