Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

On Friday 22nd April, there were two suspicious incidents where men in vans were seen looking around farm properties.

A Transit type van was seen twice in quick succession in the Symondsbury area with two males on board, who appeared to be having a good look around. When approached and asked if they were lost, one of the males said yes, before driving off.

The other was a Mercedes Sprinter and a male got out, leaving the engine running and had a walk around a premises in the Stoke Abbott area. When approached the male just left quickly.

Please be vigilant and report any suspicious incidents to us, at the time on 101, or 999 if you believe a crime is in progress. You can also report incidents online at

Many thanks.
