Hampshire Police received four reports of vehicle thefts on the evening of Sunday 5 February.
At around 10pm, two men were disrupted attempting to steal equipment bikes from a farm on Turf Croft, Burley. The suspects made off toward a nearby red 4×4 vehicle, possibly a Toyota, and were driven away by a third person.
Officers received another report that between 10pm and 10.45pm, two blue Yamaha motorbikes were stolen from an outbuilding at Fountain Court, Bramshaw. Two suspects were seen exiting toward the main road.
In the same time period, a grey Volkswagen Golf was stolen from the driveway of Cuffnells, Gritnam Road in Bank, Lyndhurst.
In addition, it was reported that between 3 and 6 February a blue Mazda was stolen from a layby on the A31.
It is suspected that these offences are connected, and work is ongoing to confirm this.
Police Sergeant Rob Ford said: “We would like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in those areas at the relevant times – even if you think it’s something small, it could prove to be an invaluable piece of information.
“Perhaps you were driving in these areas and have dash cam footage of the red 4×4, a blue Mazda, or a grey Volkswagen?
“Our team are working hard to identify those responsible for rural crimes in our area, if you have any information at all please call us on 101 with reference 44230050441.”
