A GROUP of men are travelling around the county attempting to steal pet dogs.  

A green/silver Suzuki 4X4 – possibly a Vitara model – was seen on November 18 driving around the eastern part of Wiltshire in Shalbourne, Bedwyn, Bagshot and Hungerford.

Its occupants were trying to take dogs from kennels, gardens, and back yards.  

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: “In some cases a suspect will ring the front door bell while another goes around the back of the property to try and steal the animals.  

“We are asking people to be vigilant and keep their dogs locked inside the house or ensure their kennels are safe and secure.” 

Anyone with information should call 101.
