Theft of tree trunks

A blue mk 2 land rover discovery with 2 men on board arrived at the entrance to WRP decabbed with a chain saw and entered the woodland in the area adjacent to no 39 and proceeded to saw up large sections of a fallen tree trunk. They then left loaded with several sections in the back of the vehicle.

On the 2nd visit, Police were contacted, arrived on site and challenged the activity of the men. They duely unloaded the logs and left the scene.

PC 6933 Benjamin Morris of St Austell Police says he will prosecute if the theft is repeated as he has the registration details of their Blue Mk 2 Land-rover Discovery.

In the meantime he advised us to remove and keep all felled logs out of sight and to alert residents to report any further thieves removing wood.
