Burglary in Hoo - appeal for witnesses!

Tom Taggart, who runs Taggs Coffee Shop in Hoo, has asked that I publish an appeal for witnesses to a burglary that occurred at his storage yard on Abbots Court Road (off Vicarage Lane in Hoo).

The break-in is believed to have happened between 7pm on Saturday 18 June and 8am the following morning.

Items stolen include a vehicle trailer, a BCS 740 2-wheeled tractor (similar to the one pictured below) and numerous horse riding items belonging to his daughter.

Tom is especially keen to hear from anyone with home and business CCTV cameras with views of Bells Lane, Main Road and Stoke Road, i.e. all exit roads from the village centre.

Anyone with information should contact Medway Police on 01634 792346 (the Neighbourhood Policing Unit for the area) or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Alternatively, Tom Taggart can be phoned directly on 07980 752836.
