Hearing Dog Taken In Bridgnorth Car Theft

Police officers are appealing for information and assistance after a vehicle containing a hearing dog was stolen from a petrol forecourt in Bridgnorth. The incident occurred at the Hermitage service station (Tesco) on Cann Hall Road in Low Town on Tuesday 22 February.

At 7.05pm, after the victim - who is partially deaf - had filled his grey/silver Land Rover Discovery up, he parked outside the entrance to the garage shop to go and pay for his fuel. When he went into the shop he left the keys in the vehicle's ignition and the engine running.

Two men in a white van - possibly a Renault - were on the forecourt at the same time as the victim and one of these men was putting fuel into the van. When the victim went into the shop the second man got out of the van spoke to the man filling the van with fuel and then took over from him.

A police spokesman said: "After the other man had taken over, the first man walked round the victim's Land Rover Discovery and got into it. He then calmly made off in the Land Rover closely followed by the other man in the white van who obviously hadn't paid for the fuel he'd had either.

"The stolen Land Rover not only contained the victim's black Nokia mobile phone and an expensive Canon digital camera, but also the victim's black and white, border collie hearing dog that was loose in the back of the vehicle.

"The victim is very upset by this incident and understandably is very keen to have his roperty returned to him. Most importantly it is vital that he is reunited with his hearing dog because it plays a key role in his life.

"Anyone who believes they may have information about this incident, or who may be able to help us find the victim's hearing dog, is asked to call West Mercia Police on 0300 333 3000. Alternatively, please remember that Crimestoppers can be called anonymously on 0800 555 111 if you have information you'd like to pass on without leaving your name."
