Dodgy Goods

Published: 08 April 2016

We have just received three reports of suspicious activity from persons driving around the area offering items for sale.
On the 5th April around 2pm a resident from Berkeley phoned police informing us that 2 males with Irish accents were approaching persons in the Fitzhardinge Way location and offering items for sale from the back of their Maroon coloured Mercedes saloon vehicle. We were given a full accurate registration plate ending in KFN. They were described as being in their late 20's to early 30's of very smart appearance and had picked up the items at a good price from a local auction in the Berkeley area! We would be keen to speak to these individuals, please call us on 101 if seen again.
Also, on the same afternoon a man was approached by the same persons whilst he called into a local garage for fuel.
Today we have received a similar report of males again with Irish accents driving around the Slimbridge area but today using a white panel van.
