Riding tack and a quad bike stolen in three Wimblington burglaries

POLICE are appealing for information about an attempted house break in at Doddington on Tuesday, and three burglaries in Wimblington over the weekend.

Offenders tried to smash their way into a home in Newgate Street at Doddington between 1.30pm and 7pm on Tuesday. They did not gain entry, and nothing was taken.

Offenders made off with saddles, bridles and an off-road quad bike from two stables and a barn in March Road at Wimblington. Police hope dog walkers may have seen offenders who broke into the properties between 4.30pm on Friday, and 9am on Saturday.

Detective Sergeant Matt Swash said police were linking the Wimblington offences. He added: “I would urge anyone with any information about these burglaries to call police. The locations are rural, but I am keen to speak to anyone from the local community who may have been dog walking.”

The first Wimblington burglary happened between 4.30pm on Friday and 9am on Saturday. Stables were broken into, but nothing is believed to have been stolen. A second stable block was targeted between 6pm on Friday and 8.15am on Saturday, four saddles and three bridles were stolen. The third burglary took place at a barn between 9pm on Friday and 7am on Saturday, an off-road quad bike was stolen.
