A man moving into his new home in Salisbury has had a rough start after thieves targeted his removal van.

Two sports backing containing thousands of pounds of designer clothing were stolen from the vehicle parked outside the address in Paynes Hill the victim was moving into.

The black Adidas rucksack and dark blue Slazenger holdall were taken from the unattended van around 10.15 am on the 8th of May.

PCSO Gareth James, from Wiltshire South Community Policing Team, said: 

"The bags have disappeared from the van while the victim and those helping him were taking items inside the house, leaving the open van unattended for a short while.

"The victim remembers seeing two men acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the theft and we are hoping their descriptions will jog someone's memory.

"We have conducted house to house enquiries and attempted to find CCTV in the area but have not been successful so far."


The first man is described as white, aged around 18 to 20 years old, with a gaunt-looking thin face. He was wearing a black tracksuit with cream colour under the arms and around the back, a white Nike baseball cap and dark blue trainers.

The second was also white and aged around 18 to 20 years old. He was around 6ft 3ins tall with a gaunt squarish face, wearing dark blue jeans, a shirt that was dark blue on the bottom and striped blue on the top, and black shoes with a white stripe on.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PCSO James on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, where information can be left anonymously.
