Broadwindsor Cricket Club Broken Into

Last night (Friday, September 18th) a mower and scarifier were stolen from Broadwindsor Cricket Club.

The thieves probably had a car or small van as none of the larger items were taken.  The lock is cemented to the ground and this was broken. The top small gate was open so it is likely they gained access this way.

The incident has been reported to the police. If you saw or heard anything suspicious, or if you have been offered these items of machinery then please contact: Dorset Police – online HERE or call 101.
The crime/incident no. is: 55 200 141 436.
