A spate of garden ornement thefts has left police in Wyre baffled.

A retired police officer was among the victims to have items taken from outside their properties in Stalmine.

Does anyone know who is doing this and where they are going?

At some point between December 1 and 11, this item was pinched from the garden of a home on First Avenue at Woodside Park.

Police in the area say it is one of several to go missing from the same residential park homes site in recent weeks.

Officers said the one taken from outside the retired police constable’s home was ‘quite recognisable’ as they appealed for help to trace the thief.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: “There have been several reported thefts of garden ornaments from a residential park homes site in Stalmine.

“Does anyone know who is doing this and where they are going?”

The force was yesterday unable to give details of the other thefts that have been reported.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
