Stable owners warned after thefts in Stonehouse and Frampton-on-Severn
A PONY rug and a petrol generator were just two of the items that were stolen in a spate of stable burglaries in the last week.
The first incident happened between 7pm and 8pm on Thursday, January 24 at a farm just off The Street, in Frampton-on-Severn.
The burglars entered the stables and took two horse collars and a pony’s rug.
The offenders then entered three or four caravans on the site however it is not sure if anything was taken.
In the second incident which happened between 9.30am on Friday, January 25 and 8.15am on Saturday, January 26 at a property in Stanley Downton, near Stonehouse, offenders entered the stables and took a red petrol generator and two head collars.
In a third incident around12pm on Friday, January 25, another owner of a stable in Frampton on Severn saw three people thought to be two men and one woman on her driveway.
The woman told the three people to leave and they ran off. Police believe that this is linked to the first incident.
PC Jenny Lockley said: "Following these burglaries we are urging the owners of stables and outbuildings to take extra care with equipment and property.
"Just because premises may be in a secluded place, it doesn’t mean that they are away from harm.
"Make sure that all equipment is locked away and any outbuildings are suitably secure."
Anyone with information that could help the investigation should call police on 101 quoting incident 118 of January 26.
