Shotgun cartridges theft at clay shooting ground

SHOTGUN ammunition was stolen during a break-in at a clay pigeon shooting range in Lutterworth.

The theft happened between 5pm on Sunday, November 13, and 6.50am the following day, at the Spa Vale Shooting Ground off Coventry Road on the outskirts of the town.
A number of ISO containers in some fields were broken into and a large quantity of 12 and 20-bore shotgun cartridges were stolen from the safe.
Garden tools, batteries and a quad bike were also stolen.
PC Sarah Clarke said: “We have been carrying out extensive enquiries since the incident was reported to us and are now asking the public to contact us if they have any information about the incident or the stolen items.
“If anyone saw any suspicious activity in or around the range on the A4303 between the times of the incident I would urge them to contact the police. Any descriptions of vehicles or people seen in the area at the time could assist with our enquiries.”
Anyone with information can phone PC Clarke on 101, using ID number 4713 when prompted. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, which is free and anonymous, on 0800 555 111

Gardien Comment: We can make no comment on the general theft but certainly the Quad Bike should be firmly fastened to either floor or wall and also Property Marked. See
