String of Wiltshire pubs targeted in day of burglaries


POLICE are appealing for witnesses following three incidents at public houses on Saturday.

Wiltshire Police received a call at 8.30am on 9 July 2016, reporting that a safe had been stolen from The Swan Inn, Warminster Road, Stoford. It is believed the incident happened at approximately 8.15am. The safe contained no money.

At 9.50am, officers received a call reporting a break-in at The Yew Tree in Boreham Road, Warminster. Cash was stolen from the till.

Police then received a report at 7.50pm the same day, reporting that money had been stolen from The Butt of Sherry, Castle Street, Mere, at some point during the day.

DC Kev Keast, of Trowbridge CID, said: “We are keeping an open mind in relation to these three incidents, however, we are exploring the possibility that they are all linked.

“We’d like to appeal to anyone who may have seen anybody acting suspiciously, or any suspicious vehicles, at the three venues, during the course of Saturday, to please get in touch with police immediately via 101.

“Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could be crucial to our investigation. Information can also be left anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
