Champagne thieves use wheelie bin to transport booze

First published in News

THIEVES used a wheelie bin to run off with £2,500 worth of spirits, port and Champagne they had stolen from a Southampton home.

More than 50 bottles of booze were stolen during the raid, from a shed in Cobden Crescent in the Bitterne area of the city.

Police say around 24 bottles of spirits and 30 bottles of Champagne were taken as well as several cases of port.

But the thieves also took keys for two high-powered motorcycles from the garage of the property.

Officers believe a wheelie bin may have been used to transport the alcohol after the break-in, which happened between 4pm on March 23 and 10am the next morning.

Anyone with information should contact PC Gavin Shirley at Bitterne police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
