Thieves struck at a house in Winterbourne Bassett making off with a Mini and an off-road motorbike

Wiltshire Police are appealing for witnesses to a burglary to help track down two vehicles stolen during the break-in at a property in Winterbourne Bassett. 

Sometime yesterday (09/08), unknown offenders entered the address and then stole a red Mini Countryman and an orange KTM SX450 off road motorbike. 

The number plate of the Mini, which also had a camping box on the roof, was WR18 ZZA.  

Sgt James Twyford said:  "We'd like to hear from anyone who may have heard or saw anything suspicious in this area yesterday - it's a quiet village, so anything or anyone out of the ordinary would have been obvious. 

"Also, did you see the car or bike being driven and ridden in the area? Perhaps driven at speed?

"If anyone sees either vehicle please contact us immediately." 

If you can help with enquiries please contact Sgt James Twyford on 101, quoting crime reference number 54180074948, or anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
