Appeal after Yeovil thefts
Avon & Somerset Police are appealing for the public’s help. They are releasing two CCTV images as part of an investigation into an incident in Yeovil. It involved theft and criminal damage.
Between 6pm and 7.20pm on Sunday, 4 July, offenders broke into a number of business units on Glover Walk. Windows were smashed in some units while one was flooded and a fire was set in another. A number of items were stolen.
Police understand that following the break ins, a group of teenage boys or young men, pushed a tool chest through Yeovil. Investigating officer PC Jim Card said: “We’re keen to speak to anyone who saw an orange and grey tool chest with an RAC logo on being pushed through town as well as anyone who captured any part of the incident on their dash cams.”
The damage caused and lost items are extremely frustrating for the business owners. Police say that it’s only through sheer luck the fire set didn’t catch hold and no one was hurt.
Did you see any suspicious activity in the area on the evening of 4 July? Do you recognise either of the CCTV images? Do you know any of the individuals who may have been involved? If you can help, please call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5221150565.
PS both men have now been identified by Police so we have removed their images. many thanks to all members of the public who called in with information.
