Stolen Vehicles

Police are appealing for witnesses after two vehicles were stolen from a driveway in Bradford-on-Avon overnight on 5/6 February 2017.

A house in St Aldhelm Road was broken into between 11pm on 5 February and 8.10am on 6 February and subsequently, the two vehicles were stolen from the driveway.

The vehicles stolen were a black Ford Fiesta and a silver Ford Focus.

The Ford Fiesta was later located abandoned in Church Lane, North Bradley, Trowbridge, while the Ford Focus was located on fire in fields near to Ladydown, Trowbridge, in the early hours of the morning.  The vehicle was completely burnt out.

Community Coordinator for Trowbridge, Bradford and Melksham rural, Alex Trombetta, said: "We would like to hear from any residents who may have seen or heard any suspicious activity in the St Aldhelm Road area overnight, and into the early hours of yesterday morning, as well as anyone who saw any suspicious individuals in the area of Ladydown, Trowbridge, between approximately 1.30am and 2.30am yesterday morning.

"We are carrying out a thorough investigation into this incident including house-to-house enquiries.
"The victims were understandably shocked and shaken to wake up and find both their vehicles had been stolen from the driveway.

"We would like to reiterate the importance of not leaving car keys out on display inside your homes - ensure they are locked away and out of sight of any opportunists. Also, ensure all doors and windows to your home are secure when you go to bed at night, or when leaving your property empty."

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
