Horse Tack Thefts To Be Tackled

Dorset Police are warning that if you live in a more rural area of our county you could be targeted by thieves.

PC Mike Brown, Rural Dorchester Beat Officer told Wessex FM, "We're seeing quite a few rural burglaries to sheds, garages and workshops - that kind of thing."

He warned that in particular there was a lot of horse keeping equipment going missing, including horse tack.

To try and help, Dorset Police are holding a special event next weekend (Saturday the 30th November) where they'll be giving advice about how to prevent burglaries, and they'll also be showing how to make horse equipment easily identifiable by marking it for free.

The event will be held at Scats Country Stores in Dorchester, between 10am and 3pm.
