Bug artist wanted by po­lice

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Gavin Wil­liams has some prop­erty in his pos­ses­sion that he would like to see re­turned to its owner.

In Septem­ber last year, some A3-size draw­ings were handed into the po­lice sta­tion (see pic­ture).

Some­one would have spent a lot of time and ef­fort on these draw­ings, de­pict­ing ants and he would pre­fer they go back to the artist and not be de­stroyed.

If you know who the artist may be, phone Gavin at Sey­mour Po­lice on 5735 0200.
