Canal boat broken into and damaged in Hollingwood
Main article content
We are appealing for information after a canal boat was broken into and damaged in Hollingwood.
It was moored near to the Hollingwood Hub Café, off Works Road, at around 9pm on Friday 2 July when the incident happened.
The dark blue boat was allegedly broken into, and items inside had been damaged. A set of keys were stolen.
It is thought the offenders have climbed a fence on Station Road to get into the car park for the Hollingwood Hub and then on to access the boat.
Officers are particularly keen to trace two teenage boys, thought to be around 12 or 13 years old, who were wearing black hoodies and had been riding BMX bikes, and are believed to have been in the area around the time of the incident.
Another boat was also targeted sometime between Saturday 19 June and Monday 21 June and it is not yet known if the two incidents are linked.
We would like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area around the time of the incident, or anyone who may have come across a similar type of incident and have not yet reported it.
