Residents urged to be vigilant following incident in Seend

Residents in Seend are being urged to be extra vigilant following an incident in which a man was seen in the area trying vehicle door handles. 

The incident took place at approximately 4.15am on 9 May. Fortunately, no entry was gained to any vehicles. It follows a similar incident reported in the area back in January.

PCSO Helen Wilson, of Melksham Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We would like to speak to the man pictured in connection with this incident.

“Enquiries are ongoing to identify him, however, we would urge all residents to be extra vigilant and ensure their vehicles are locked when left unattended, and that all valuable items are removed. Opportunists will strike anywhere, so by taking these simple steps, you will help reduce your chances of falling victim to this type of crime.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
