POLICE have launched an appeal after a number of items were stolen from a charity community project in Dursley.

Thieves stole multiple tools, two quad bikes and an off-road motorbike from two buildings at Breakheart Community Project also known as Breakheart Quarry.

It is believed the theft happened in the early hours of Friday, June 21 between 1am and 3am.

It is understood around £20,000 worth of items were stolen.

This includes two Polaris quad bikes, a Montesa trial motorbike, five strimmers, a hedge trimmer, a petrol blower, a pole saw, six chainsaws, and a broken cement mixer.

However, one of the quad bikes has since been recovered, police say. 

Breakheart Quarry on Stinchcombe Hill Road has been run by volunteers since 2009, with the goal of caring for the site and returning it to its natural state.

A spokesperson from Gloucestershire Police said: “Officers are now asking for anyone who may have seen anything suspicious, or who has been offered any items matching the descriptions for sale, to come forward.”

Anyone with information should contact police quoting incident number 124 of June 21 - tinyurl.com/mwuw69np
