Attempted burglary in Whiteparish

POLICE are appealing for information after two men were seen acting suspiciously in Whiteparish.

An attempted burglary happened at a property in Dean Lane on December 30. The victims pulled into their driveway at 7.33pm and were confronted by two men who appeared to be trying to get into the house.

The men then left, making excuses that they were ‘looking for Romsey’.

Damage to the front door lock was later discovered. Another local resident found a man on her driveway in similar circumstances at about 6pm.

PC Trevor Morgan from the priority crime team at Salisbury Police Station would like to hear from anyone who may have seen two men walking around the village, particularly in the area of Dean Lane, The Green and Highlands Way.

The men are described as both wearing dark coloured hoodies and dark jeans, and aged in their late teens to early 20s, of slim to medium build and about 5ft 11ins to 6ft tall.

Anyone with information can contact PC Morgan on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

So, the police want to know if anyone saw someone walking about over two weeks ago. 7.30 at night so it was dark, too. 'Priority Crime Team' seems a bit of a misnomer. When will Wiltshire Police realise that the public ARE willing to help, and they don't need to try and solve it on their own before asking. There used to be a press call daily at the police station, and the papers could decide what was newsworthy on the day. Now the stories are not released until two weeks or more later, and the Journal get the blame for being out of touch.

This is likely down to police forces being universally incompetent when it comes to anything other then stopping and searching kids for drugs

... Wiltshire police never did get back to me when I asked what the "suspicious" substance was that they thought was a bomb and thus had to close a road whilst they investigated... Before people go "oh but Dr, what if it had been a bomb" I would suggest that since the year 2000 there have 59 terror-related deaths, and over 860 deaths in police custody. I don't think we need to worry...

Come on be a bit fair to our police. They are busy trying to find a custody suite in Salisbury.
