Witnesses Sought To Bakewell Handbag Theft

Posted on 25th July 2017

We are appealing for witnesses – and urging people to take good care of their belongings – following a handbag theft in Bakewell on Monday, July 17th.

Between 1pm and 1.52pm on Granby Road, a bag was stolen from the open boot of a car whilst a man assisted his wife getting into the vehicle.

PCSO Anthony Boswell said: “Monday, July 17th was market day in Bakewell and the area was busy. If you were among the crowd and witnessed the theft, or saw anything suspicious, please get in touch and help us identify those responsible.

“We are also keen to ensure that people keep an eye on their valuable possessions at all times, particularly in crowded places where thieves can blend in and are more difficult to trace.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PCSO Anthony Boswell on 101 quoting reference number 17000304467.
