During the night of Wednesday 27th July four stone garden mushrooms and a sundial were stolen from a garden in Warmingham while the occupants were in with house lights on.
A neighbour saw and checked an empty big SILVER RENAULT van parked opposite his property at around 11.30pm and made a note of the registration RE08 MFK and the following morning when the theft was discovered the police were informed.
The owner of the van was already known to the police and has been questioned but because he was not caught in the act no arrest could be made. There must have been at least two people and more likely three to lift the heavy items.
Please have a note of this vehicle and its registration number handy when you are travelling in the area and if it is parked up the police want you to dial 999 immediately [ no other police number] so they can act instantly and be caught in the act.
Please help to stop any more village thefts.
