Trailer containing multicoloured horse jumps stolen after break-in at barn in Bures St Mary
A trailer containing 12 multicoloured horse jumps was stolen in Bures St Mary over the weekend, with its owners and the police both appealing for information.
Offenders forced their way into a barn on Cuckoo Hill sometime between Sunday at 10am and Monday at 7am, before stealing a twin-wheel Ifor Williams trailer, belonging to the Lavenham and District Equestrian Club.
A statement issued by the club on Monday said: “Over night, we have had one of our trailers stolen, which was loaded up with a full set of coloured plastic ‘jump for joy’ show jumps. Jumps that, as a voluntary committee and a non-profit organisation, the club have worked so hard over the last five years to save up for and buy.”
“Please share far and wide and keep an eye out for them.”
Anybody who saw any suspicious activity in the Cuckoo Hill area at the times stated, or who has any knowledge of the whereabouts of the stolen trailer, is asked to call Suffolk Police on 101, quoting the crime reference number 37/24642/20.
