Burglaries - Witney

Police are appealing for witnesses following two burglaries in Witney on Monday (31st March).

At around 9.30pm, offenders broke into Sobell House Charity Warehouse, Station Lane Industrial Estate, and stole 100 in cash and a Renault Master Panel Van, registration OV55 EXA.

Another unit was also broken into on the Industrial Estate and two generators, one roll of heavy duty armoured cable, two four-way splitter boxes and a digital camera were stolen.

PC Sian Griffiths, based at Witney police station, said: We believe these two burglaries are linked and that the offenders used the van to get away with the property.

I appeal to anyone who many have seen a van of this registration with Sobell House Charity Warehouse on both sides and on the front, plus a charity logo, to contact police immediately.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact PC Griffiths via Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 0845 8 505 505. If you dont want to speak to police and dont want to leave your name contact the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
