Property including "nearly all of the stolen items" were found and seized.

A 23-year-old woman from Bournemouth was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods. She has since been released under investigation while enquiries are ongoing.

A 33-year-old man from Ringwood was also arrested before being de-arrested and then asked to attend police interview under caution.

The arrests were among five made over three shifts since the High Harm Team was launched last week.

A Facebook post about the arrests said: "This team was formed to tackle offences like these – those that have a huge impact on the wider community – and we are committed to identifying suspects and returning property to those that have been affected by crime in the rural community."
