Evesham Editorial 7th Jul, 2023   0

ITEMS stolen in a burglary at an Upton Snodsbury post office have been recovered by police officers.

At about 1.35am on (Tuesday (July 4) police responded to a report of a burglary and conducted a coordinated search for the offenders.

Pursuit trained officers were also despatched from our road policing unit in anticipation offenders may make off from police. The police helicopter was also utilised in the response to the incident and the search for the offenders.

A short while after the burglary was reported a silver 4X4 vehicle was seen in suspicious circumstances by officers in the area of Cleeve Prior and was pursued and ultimately recovered by police.

The stolen items from the burglary including a stolen till, a large amount of stolen cash, tools and other items of evidence were recovered.

A thorough forensic examination of the recovered vehicle has been conducted, CCTV from the burglary and surrounding area is being scrutinised and a thorough investigation is underway to identify and prosecute those responsible.




Insp Dave Wise said: ”Burglary is one of our key priorities, we are committed to bringing the perpetrators of these offences to justice.

“This burglary was reported to us while it was happening and we responded with all of our resources in a co-ordinated manner which resulted in the recovery of the stolen items and vehicle – it’s only a matter of time now before those responsible are put before the courts.”
