Information appeal after pet rabbits go missing from Ripley garden

Posted on 5th May 2015

Officers are appealing for information after two pet rabbits are believed to have been stolen from a garden in Ripley. 

Offenders gained entry to the back garden of a property on Ash Crescent sometime between 1am and 9am on Sunday, May 3, causing damage to a rabbit hutch.

Two lionhead rabbits are now missing and are believed to have been stolen. One is described as dark brown in colour and the other has a sandy shade.

PC Richard Marshall from the Ripley Town Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “I am urging anyone who may have details about this incident to get in touch so the family can hopefully be reunited with their pets.

“In the wake of this incident, I would encourage residents to consider stepping up home and garden security including installing fences, CCTV monitoring or alarms in a bid to deter this type of crime in the future.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact PC Marshall on 101, quoting crime number 18466/15, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
