Wiltshire Police hunt bike youths over break-ins
1:07pm Thursday 7th March 2013 in News
A 12-YEAR-OLD boy has been questioned by police over a spate of shed break-ins at an allotment in the town.
Wiltshire Police are appealing for information following the eight shed burglaries which took place shortly before 5pm on Friday, March 1 at the allotments off Wheeler Avenue, in Upper Stratton.
The sheds were broken into and a number of hand tools were stolen.
As a result of police enquiries, a 12-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of theft and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
But now officers are keen to speak to two other boys seen in the area at the same time.
Both are described as being white, of slim build and between the ages of 14 and 17.
One was described as wearing a grey anorak, the other a blue anorak.
The teens jumped over a fence of a garden in Wheeler Avenue and made off in the direction of Cricklade Road.
It is believed that they both got away on two push bikes – one of which is believed to have been pulling a trailer.
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Lisa Mundy at the Local Crime Team in Swindon on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
