Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers investigating an alleged burglary at a business in Poole are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward – with one man arrested.

Dorset Police received a report at around 9.30pm on Sunday 15 August 2021 of a burglary at Pandora in the Dolphin Shopping Centre.

It is alleged that a group of men forced entry to an area behind Kingland Crescent, before entering the shop and stealing a large quantity of jewellery. 

Officers attended and it is reported that the group ran away toward the railway line. One man, aged 39 and of no fixed abode, was arrested on suspicion of burglary and is currently assisting officers with their enquiries.

The remaining members of the group allegedly got into a dark-coloured people carrier vehicle that was parked nearby in Sainsbury’s car park in Pitwines Close and drove off from the area. 

A quantity of the jewellery has been recovered.

Police Constable Sarah Hodgson, of Dorset Police’s Priority Crime Team, said: “I am appealing to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area around the relevant time to please come forward.

“I would urge motorists to please check their dashcams for any footage that may assist my enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210131829. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at or call Freephone 0800 555 111.
