Main article content
Officers are appealing for information from the public after a Shetland pony was stolen from a farm on the outskirts of Winsford.
The pony, called Isla, was stolen sometime between 10pm on Friday 2 July and 6am on Saturday 3 July from a farm off Darnhall School Lane.
Isla was subsequently located safe and well in the Crewe area on Tuesday 7 July, and has been recovered by her owner.
While Isla has been found, enquiries in relation to her theft are ongoing and officers are urging anyone with any information or video footage that may aid their investigation to get in touch.
Inspector Jason Murray, of Northwich Local Policing Unit, said: “It’s great news that Isla has now been located and reunited with her owner, but our investigation into her theft remains ongoing.
“The stables where Isla was taken from are in a semi-rural area, and in order to have accessed the farm it is likely that the offenders will have travelled along Darnhall School Lane or Moores Lane.
“Therefore, as part of our investigation we are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area on the night of the incident and believes they may have seen anything suspicious.
“The same goes for anyone with any CCTV or dashcam footage which may aid our investigation.”
Anyone with information or footage that may be relevant to the investigation is asked to call Cheshire Constabulary on 101, quoting IML1028182, give the details via our website or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
