Police appeal over stolen garden equipment

A NINETEEN-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested on suspicion of theft after police recovered a number of garden items thought to have been stolen from the Minchinhampton area.
A number of the items recovered, including a child’s play house and a wooden bird table, have been identified as having been stolen from Minchinhampton Primary School over the Easter period, but police are still trying to identify the owners of a number of other pieces of property.
Officers would like to hear from anyone who believes they may have had any of the following items stolen:
• A wooden see-saw with a bright pink base.
• A large wooden picnic table.
• A wheeled hosepipe coil.
• Three green round plastic garden foliage bags and mounting chairs.
• A green metal ‘Public Footpath’ sign.
• A ‘disabled parking’ sign.
Anyone who can identify the items is asked to contact PC Dave Wood by calling Gloucestershire police on 101, quoting incident number 110 of April 17.
The suspect, who is from the area, has been released on bail until May 20
