Burglary in Godshill – appeal for witnesses

The police are appealing for witnesses after a burglary at a work site on the new development at Munsley Close off the Newport Road.

Entry was forced to a container on the site between 11am on December 20 and midday on December 21.

Offenders stole two cans of white diesel and professional tools including a Bomag vibrating plate and a Bomag BT60 tamper.
It is believed a vehicle was parked close to the site and a wheelbarrow used to move the machinery.

Officers investigating are keen to speak with anyone who saw anything suspicious between the above times.

PC Timothy Campany, of the Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Did you drive past the work site between 11am on December 20 and midday the following day? “If you have a dash cam and did drive past the site, I would urge you to review the footage and get in touch with us. “I would also ask anyone offered plant machinery or diesel for sale to contact us.”

NOTE: The site is the new building site by the 30mph signs as you leave Godshill going towards Rookley/Newport.

Anyone with information can call 101, quoting 44190460106. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
