Skegness police link pushchair and bath taken from Hogsthorpe and Winthorpe with metal theft

An expensive child’s pushchair taken from a from a front garden in Hogsthorpe last week has been linked to spate of metal thefts in the area.

Lincolnshire Police believe the Stokke Xplory may have been taken from the house on Thames Street between 2pm and 3.45pm on Friday, June 21, for its scrap value.

The theft follows the removal of a metal bath and taps, taken from the driveway of a house on Church Lane, Winthorpe, on Tuesday, June 18 between 3.30pm and 5.30pm.

Although the pushchair was only a few months old, worth ‘several hundred pounds’ and therefore possibly stolen for sale, police are linking both crimes to metal theft.

Anyone with information about either should contact PC Calley Murray of Skegness Police Station on 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
