Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a burglary at a garden centre in Fair Oak - where thieves stole nearly 50 pies.

It happened at the Arturi’s Garden Centre on Allington Lane sometime between 5pm on Friday, February 18 and 8.45am on Saturday, February 19.

Two wire fences were cut to gain access to the premises and a storage shed was entered.

Items taken included a crate of 48 savoury pies, a crate of 18 pieces of cod and a box of jumbo sausages.  A yellow transformer, which is used to power lighting, was also removed.

The total value of the items taken is estimated to be around £125.

PC Paul Osborne, of Eastleigh police station, said: “Due to the size and weight of the items stolen we believe it is likely that the offenders would have used a vehicle in order to transport the goods. The closest place a vehicle could have been parked is on Allington Lane.

“We would therefore urge anyone who may have seen any suspicious vehicles parked on Allington Lane, or any suspicious behaviour in the area, during the relevant times to contact police. We would also like to hear from anyone who may have been offered these food items for sale.”

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact PC Paul Osborne at Eastleigh police station on 101 or to report to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
