Police are keen to trace the owners of a forklift truck battery seized during the day of action that targeted scrap dealerships in the county a fortnight ago.

The battery which is estimated to cost around £4,000 to replace was seized from a van close to a scrap dealership in Christian Malford.

Although enquiries have been made it has not been possible to locate the owner at this time.

Photographs of the battery are attached and officers are keen to hear from anyone who believes it may be theirs.

Anyone with any information or who thinks the item may be theirs is asked to contact Debby Homer of the Local Crime Team in Melksham on 101.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

NOTE: a 50-year-old man from Dilton Marsh, near Westbury was subsequently arrested on suspicion of theft.

He was later released on police bail.
