Spate of thefts of caravans in Wiltshire - including the Marlborough area - brings police warning

 

 

On Thursday (December 14), Wiltshire Police issued this notice:  "We are urging caravan owners to be vigilant and take steps to improve security following a number of thefts across the county."

"Between 3 and 4 November, two caravans were stolen from a storage yard in Marlborough Road in Swindon after the suspects cut through padlocks to access them."

The police notice then lists a number of caravan thefts in the county including: "Between 23 and 24 November, a Coachman Amara 520/4 caravan was stolen from a driveway in Brook Street, Marlborough.  A wheel clamp was cut and left at the scene."

Marlborough.news understands that men in a silver coloured car were recently noticed acting suspiciously in Cadley.   Their presence was reported to the police.

But some days later a caravan was stolen from a nearby house.  Police believe the car has been used in thefts of fuel in the Marlborough area.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: “Our enquiries are ongoing in relation to each of these incidents and we have been carrying out visibility patrols in the areas targeted. We understand that these thefts can have a real impact on the victims – the caravans stolen are worth thousands of pounds."

“We always advise caravan owners to fit security devices to their vehicles to protect them from theft or break-ins. It may seem like an extra expense but investing in these devices could really help reduce your risk of falling victim to crime."



“We are continuing with our enquiries into these incidents and are keeping an open mind as to whether any of them are linked – we would urge anyone with information in relation to the incidents to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

In 2010 four Irish travellers were convicted of stealing £970,000 worth of caravans, cars, motorhomes, jewellery and so on.  Many of their crimes involved stealing caravans from driveways.

They were arrested after Wiltshire Police raided a site at Chiseldon Firs near Swindon.
