Hunt on af­ter picket fence parts stolen

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Team Work -

A man is ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion about a thief in a sports car who he be­lieves stole sec­tions of his white picket fence.

Alan Hart from Stowt­ing Com­mon said he no­ticed the three large sec­tions of fenc­ing, about three me­tres each, were miss­ing on Tues­day morn­ing last week.

Af­ter re­port­ing the crime to the po­lice, Mr Hart was told by a neigh­bour that they had seen a con­vert­ible sports car drive past with white picket fence pan­els stick­ing out the back. He said: “There can­not be that many lo­cal peo­ple who have an open-top sports car so I’m just hop­ing some­one can iden­tify this per­son.

“It is so bizarre. My wife and I have lived here for 25 years and we have never had any­thing like this hap­pen.

“It was very ex­pen­sive fenc­ing, so it is go­ing to cost me hun­dreds of pounds to re­place it.”

A Kent Po­lice spokesman said: “We are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­port of picket fenc­ing be­ing stolen from an ad­dress in Stowt­ing Com­mon some­time between mid­night on Mon­day, Au­gust 11, and 7.30am on Tues­day, Au­gust 12.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call the po­lice on 101.
