Vehicle crime in Bishops Cleeve and Tewkesbury

Alert message sent 19/07/2019 14:32:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Overnight on 16th and 17th July a van was entered when it was parked in Pamington Fields, Ashchurch.  The thieves entered via the rear door and removed electric tools from inside.

The same night the owner of a van parked in Stanford Road, was disturbed by the intruder alarm activating.  The van had been entered via the rear door but nothing was stolen.  The alarm obviously frightened them off.

That night two suspicious persons wearing balaclavas, or similar headwear, were seen at around 1.30 to 2am in Warren Road.  They were spotted near parked vehicles and left in a vehicle bearing suspected false number plates.

Similarly, on the night of 15th and 16th July a van was entered in Grange Court, Tewkesbury and power tools stolen.

The same night in Meadow Way Bishops Cleeve a vehicle was entered and cordless electrical tools stolen and in The Holt where electrical tools were the target.
