CCTV: Hunt for three men after cash stolen in daylight raid of village home
THREE masked burglars stole cash when they carried out a daylight raid on a home in Alderholt, near Fordingbridge.
Police have released CCTV images of the suspects they want to find following the break-in which took place in Hillbury Road between 2pm and 3.30pm on Wednesday.
A man reportedly knocked on the front door of the property while the occupants were out before the trio hopped over a fence and gained access to the property via its back door.
Following a search inside, they escaped with a quantity of cash.
Det. Sgt Karen Penn, of Dorset Police’s priority crime team, said: “Officers have been carrying out a number of enquiries into this incident so far, including an examination of the scene and house-to-house visits.
“I am issuing CCTV images of three men I would like to try and identify as part of my enquiries.
“While I appreciate they have their faces covered, I am hoping someone may recognise them from their build and clothing. If anyone has any information about who they are, please get in touch.”
Officers are also keen to hear from those who saw any suspicious activity in the Hillbury Road area around the time of the burglary.
Those with information should contact the force on 101, quoting crime reference number 55210035313, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
