Appeal following burglary in Essington, South Staffordshire

Officers from Staffordshire Police are appealing for information after rare bottles of whisky, worth tens of thousands of pounds, were stolen from an address in South Staffordshire.

During the evening of Monday 12 November, thieves forced their way into the property on Sneyd Lane, Essington, by smashing a patio door.

Once inside they have completed an untidy search and stolen bottles of whisky including Macallan special editions and Port Ellen annual releases from a specialist collection.

It is believed that the suspects used a light coloured old style panel van, similar to a 2003 Peugeot expert, to transport the goods.

A month later on Wednesday 12 December, offenders entered the same property through a side gate and cut the electricity wires on the outside of the house disabling the alarm and phone lines.

They forced entry through the patio door, but on this occasion left empty handed in a white VW Golf, thought to be a 2017 GTI.

DC Dan Champeau from Staffordshire Police said: "The investigation is on-going and we are appealing for anyone in the Essington area who saw anything suspicious or anyone who may have information about the theft to come forward and speak to officers.

"The items taken are very distinctive, and we hope that by sharing these photos it will remind any members of the public who may have seen them since, possibly advertised for sale."

If you know where the stolen property is or if you have any information please contact us by emailing Daniel.Champeau@staffordshire.pnn.police.uk quoting incident number 810 of 12 November.

You can also report crime by contacting the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
