Police appeal for witnesses after home burnt to ground in suspected burglary and arson, Stretton under Fosse

Incident 441 of 4 December 2018

Officers investigating a burglary and suspected arson are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen any suspicious activity or vehicles at Hillcrest Farm, Fosseway, Stretton under Fosse between 6pm and 10pm on Tuesday 4 December 2018.

Two motorbikes were stolen during the incident - a black Harley Heritage Motorcycle and a black and silver Harley Fatboy 4W Drive and police are also appealing for sightings of these.  Did you see them on a trailer perhaps?  Did you see a vehicle driving erratically on the Fosse that evening?

The farm house is on the left hand side of the Fosse Way B4455, just over the M6 motorway bridge when travelling towards Stretton under Fosse. The house is set back from the roadside a distance of approximately 8 meters but is still visible and accessible from the road side. 

Police believe the house was broken into before the premises were then set on fire and are appealing for any information that may assist officers with their investigation.  Please contact Warwickshire Police on 101 quoting incident 441 of 4 December 2018 asking for PSI 5132 Ian Stockwell in Rugby CID.
