November 11, 2014, 1:21 pm

Officers in Blandford are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a wooden sculpture was stolen from the town – with a picture of the stolen item being released.


The theft of a wooden eagle happened between 6pm on Friday 31 October 2014 and 8.30am on Saturday 1 November 2014 from the garden area of an address along Preetz Way.

Police Community Support Officer Mike Sinnick, of Blandford police, said: “The sculpture is very distinct and I hope somebody may be able to help with our enquiries.

“It is about 80 centimetres tall, stained with light and dark brown oil and quite heavy but could be carried by a person

“I urge anyone who witnessed the theft or may have seen anything suspicious in the area at the time to come forward.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who knows of the whereabouts of the wooden eagle or has been offered such an item in strange circumstances or for an unusually low price.”
