Police have issued a warning to all dog owners in the area to be watchful of their pets after a suspected dognapping in Long Bennington.

The incident was reported to police on July 3 after a dog was taken from Lilley Street, Long Bennington.

Speaking about the incident, PCSO Barbara Mooney stated: “Please be vigilant at this time with leaving your dogs out in the front of your properties on their own, as this seems to be a trend in stealing dogs.”

On top of this, it appears that several other houses have also been marked up for future thefts using chalk marks either on or near to the property.

Along with this, it is reported that a few suspicious looking vehicles have been seen in the area, including a white Citroen van with sliding doors.

It is reported that the van has a livery sign writing advertising plastering jobs.

Anyone who witnesses any suspicious activity of this nature should contact the force control room on 101.
