Date of alert:
Monday, 16 October 2023
Police seized a van and a number of gardening tools, which were thought to be stolen, following reports of suspected hare coursing in Cranborne.
The van was seized after checks by the Dorset Police Rural Crime Team showed it had no insurance.
The van was subsequently taken away on the back of a truck by police.
Police also seized chainsaws, leaf blowers and hedge trimmers which were suspected to have been stolen.
A Rural Crime Team spokesperson said one of the occupants "decided to play hide and seek", fleeing the scene but there was no update on whether the individual was located.
