Vehicles targeted by thieves in Knowl Hill car park


THIEVES have targeted cars parked outside a restaurant in Knowl Hill.

Between 6.10pm and 6.40pm on Monday, October 30, the offenders stole items from three vehicles parked in the car park of the Bird in Hand restaurant in Bath Road.

The people who carried out the thefts are believed to be part of a gang who are responsible for thefts from vehicles in other areas on the same day.

There were thefts from two cars in the car park of a restaurant in Oxford Road, Beaconsfield; another at The Moor car park in Murrin Road, Cookham; thefts from cars parked in the car park of the former Chequers pub in High St, Iver; thefts at Liston Road car park behind Waitrose in Marlow; and from The Walnut Tree car park, Bourne End.

There was also a theft of a motorcycle which was stolen from the Horton industrial estate, Stanwell Road, Horton.

CCTV images have been released of people officers would like to speak to in connection with the offences.

Case Investigator Claire Lloyd of Maidenhead Investigation Hub said: “This is a concerning volume of crime to occur in a matter of hours across four local policing areas and the MO of the offences raises suspicion that the suspects are organised in regard to their offending.  Thousands of pounds worth of personal property was stolen during these offences including purses, passports, handbags, rucksacks, laptops and other electronic equipment causing inconvenience, distress and financial loss to a great number of people.

“We would urge anyone who recognises the people in the photographs to contact us as a matter of urgency on 101 quoting crime ref 43170323095.”
