POLICE are appealing for witnesses following the theft of garden ornaments in Riddings.
Two cast iron stags were stolen from a house on West Street sometime between 8.30pm on Tuesday, April 10 and 8.40am on Wednesday, April 11.
PC Brooks from Alfreton police said: “The ornaments are very distinctive, one is 4ft tall and the other is 5ft. They are made from cast iron and would have been very heavy to carry and a vehicle would have been required to transport them.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Brooks on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
