Dog-nap concerns probed
10:00am Monday 19th August 2013 in News
HAMPSHIRE Police have responded to reports of suspicious activity in Andover rumoured to be linked to dognapping.
Residents living in River Way and King Arthurs Way have raised concerns about cold callers and mysterious white marks left on their homes.
A Hampshire Police spokeswoman said: “We have received some reports of suspicious cold callers offering to do work on houses and marks being left on pavements outside houses and on property walls.
“We are aware that the public think this may be linked to dogs. Officers have carried out house-to-house enquiries and we have had no reports of dogs being stolen.
“If you are in doubt about who is at your door then it is suggested you keep them out and if you see anything suspicious please report it to 101 straight away while keeping all doors and gates locked during the day and at night.”
Meanwhile in Ludgershall councillors have agreed to take action to remove any trainers left tied to wires in prominent locations in the town.
Trainers tied together are known to be an underworld sign that drug-dealing takes place in the vicinity.
