Model railway engines and carriages stolen from shop in Bourton

Gloucestershire Constabulary has launched a CCTV appeal after more than £500 worth of model trains were stolen from a shop in Bourton-on-the-Water.

Thieves targeted the Bourton Model Railways store at around 3.15pm on Tuesday, March 3, stealing two model railway engines and a pack of coaches costing the store £595.

A Bachman 31 – 519 (Class 158 766 2 car DMU GWR) worth £230, a Bachman 31 – 517 (Class 158 849 2 car DMU BR Reginal railways) worth £230 and a Graham Farish three coach set worth £135 were all stolen.

The man and woman pictured are believed to be from the West Midlands area and may have been travelling in a silver Peugeot.

It is believed that the unknown thieves have targeted multiple model shops, including those in other counties, before stealing high value items and officers are asking model shop owners and traders to remain extra vigilant to this type of crime.

Investigating officers want to speak to the two people pictured as they may have information which could help with the investigation.

Anyone who recognises them is asked to call police on 101 and quote incident number 109 of March 8.
