Bolsover Road burglary

Our officers in South Derbyshire are appealing for the public’s help after a musician has equipment stolen in an overnight burglary. 

The theft happened between 8pm on Wednesday, June 13 and 7.15am Thursday, June 14, when someone forced entry in to the garage of a house on Bolsover Road, Derby. 

The house is on the new housing estate off Rykneld Road, Littleover, close to the junction with the A38. 

Musical equipment worth thousands of pounds was stolen including: Four ‘Evox’ PA systems, two ‘Marshall ASD 100’ Amps, a ‘Cajon J Leiva Omeja’ bass hand drum, an ‘Alan and Heath ZX’ mixing desk and a ‘Roland TD6KV’ electric drum kit in a black kit bag. Some of the equipment is pictured here. 

PCSO Jamie Gutberlet, who is part of the policing Safer Neighbourhood team covering the area, said: “The victim of this crime is understandably upset to have had this valuable equipment stolen and so we are asking for help from the public. 

“We would like to hear from anyone who has been offered similar equipment for sale or saw anything suspicious at the time of the offence. 

“We know that a navy blue ‘transit’ type van was seen driving around the estate between 12.30am and 1.30am that morning so we would particularly like to hear from anyone who saw that vehicle.” 

If you think you can help please contact Jamie on 101, quoting reference number 18*273810.
