Thief Targets Ambulance

A bag belonging to a paramedic has been stolen from the back of an ambulance in Shaftesbury.

Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward. It happened sometime between 8pm and 10pm on Sunday, 3 April 2011.

A green holdall bag, containing mainly paperwork and some items of medical equipment, was taken from the rear of the vehicle. There were no drugs or medicines in the bag.

Police Constable Hilary Gooding said:

“The paramedic attended a number of emergency calls during the time of the incident and after returning to her vehicle she noticed the bag had been taken.

“I’d like to hear from any witnesses or anyone who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the Shaftesbury area between 8pm and 10pm on Sunday, 3 April to contact me.

“The bag may well have been discarded after it was stolen so I’d also appeal to anyone who finds a green, holdall bag to hand it in to your nearest police station.”
