Detectives investigating a burglary at a store in Ferndown are issuing CCTV images of the suspect.
Dorset Police received a report at around 3.30am on Friday 24 September 2021 of a burglary at Pedal Cycle Stores in Ringwood Road.
It is reported that a black Hyundai Ioniq was driven into the premises and a man entered the store. Two electric scooters were taken and loaded into the rear of the vehicle.
A further report was subsequently received that a black Hyundai Ioniq had been located on fire in Milhams Road in Bournemouth. The scooters have not been recovered.
Further enquires revealed the Hyundai had been stolen from an address in Ferndown during the early hours of Friday 24 September 2021.
Detective Constable Michelle Lawrence, of Dorset Police’s Priority Crime Team, said: “We are continuing to investigate this incident and I am now in a position to issue CCTV images of the suspect.
“I appreciate the man’s face cannot be seen clearly, but it may be someone is able to recognise him from the clothing he is wearing.
“I would also like to hear from anyone who may have come across electric scooters being offered for sale in unusual circumstances recently.”
