Samurai Sword Stolen In New Forest Robbery
A three and a half foot long samurai sword's been taken in a robbery in the New Forest.
Police say it was stolen from a flat in Ashley near new Milton last month along with gadgets worth more than 2-thousand pounds.
It happened at sometime between noon on Saturday, September 21 and noon on Monday, September 24.
Someone broke a bedroom window of a ground floor flat.
Included in the missing items is a 42-inch Paul Chen Samurai sword with a ray-skin handle.
Also taken were a 40-inch Samsung flat screen television and a 22-inch LG flat screen television and their remote controls.
A Blackberry Tablet, Sony HD camcorder, a Kodak pocket camera, Samsung digital camera, Phillips headphones and a memory card with martial arts training footage also are missing.
PC Graham Wilkins is leading the investigation. He said:
''I need to hear from anyone who saw or heard unusual activity or unfamiliar people in that area during the 48 hours in question.
''There would have been the noise of breaking glass, and the intruder probably used a vehicle.
''I am particularly interested in hearing from anyone who saw a suspicious vehicle in the area of Ashley Cross Road or Ashtree Close and anyone who has been offered any of the items since the burglary''.
A bomb disposal team was called to Gillam Road in Kinson after household items were set alight outside.
Tens of thousands of people lined the harbour to welcome HMS Queen Elizabeth to her home port for the first time.
Lanes will be added on Junction 9 slip roads, the Parkway South roundabout and Whiteley Way approach.
