BURGLARS escaped with £1,445 worth of equestrian and garden equipment after they raided an outbuilding at Doverdale.
The incident took place between 10.30pm last Saturday (August 22) and 8am the following morning.
It is believed the criminals used bolt cutters or a similar tool to cut through a padlock on a wooden side door to gain entry, causing £15 in damages, before they took a variety of items which they transported to the main road with a wheelbarrow.
Among the things taken were two Jeffrey Rogers black leather saddles, bridles, Martingale, stirrups, stiffup leathers, numnah, girth, bit, reins, eggbutt snaffle, noseband, a fly bonnet and body armour. Together the items were worth £400.
A £200 Husqvarna chainsaw was taken along with a Husqvarna strimmer worth £150, a Huswvarna vaccum blower valued at £180 and £15 worth of petrol.
