Dorchester's Vodaphone Shop In Smash And Grab Raid


1:22pm 17th June 2012

Eight expensive mobile phones have been stolen in Dorchester.

The incident happened at 3:30pm on 15th June at the Vodafone shop on South Street.

Three men entered the shop and stole the phones - which had a total value of over three thousand pounds - from their display.

Police Constable Melanie Caldow, of Dorchester Police, said: "The men quickly entered the store where they simultaneously ripped the phones from the display and ran out onto the street.

They ran up Antelope Walk in the direction of Princes Street where they were seen getting into a grey Volkswagen hatchback parked outside the Sportarm shop."

One of the men was wearing all dark coloured clothing, another was wearing a grey hooded top, dark coloured jeans and white trainers. The third offender was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms that had a black stripe down the sides, a dark coloured hooded top and dark coloured trainers.

Police are keen to speak to witnesses, as well as a woman who saw the offenders get into the vehicle.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 14:257. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
