POLICE have renewed their appeal for information following the theft of poppy appeal collection boxes.

Tins full of donated money were taken from the Duke of Wellington pub in Bourton, Chipping Campden Post Office and the counter of a garage in Ashchurch, Tewkesbury, on November 5.

A further collection tin for Help for Heroes was reported stolen from a shop on Chipping Campden High Street between Wednesday, October 31 and Saturday, November 3.

It is not known how much money was in the tin.

Chris Jackson, Gloucestershire Police spokesman, said that names had been put forward in relation to the Ashchurch thefts following the release of CCTV images but they still had not caught the offenders involved.

“Investigations are ongoing,” he said.

Anyone with information about the thefts should contact Gloucestershire Police on 101, or give information anonymously by contacting the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or via crimestoppers-uk.org.
