Woman arrested after £10,000 haul including tack stolen

  • An arrest has been made in relation to the theft of equipment, including tack, worth about £10,000.

    Hampshire Constabulary confirmed that a young woman has been arrested in connection with the theft from a vehicle last week.

    “We received reports of a theft from a vehicle between 8.30pm and midnight on Tuesday, 21 March from an address on Whitsbury Road in Fordingbridge,” a spokesman for the force told H&H.

    “Following further police enquiries, New Forest’s high harm team and response and patrol officers searched three premises including a property on Alexandra Road in Bournemouth, a property on The Headlands in Salisbury, Wiltshire and a property on Salisbury Road in Ringwood.

    “Property, including horse tack items valued at around £10,000 in total was recovered and seized as a result.”

    The spokesman said a 23-year-old woman from Bournemouth was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods. She has since been released under investigation while enquiries are ongoing.

    A 33-year-old man from Ringwood is expected to voluntarily attend an interview under caution in a police custody suite.
