A DISTINCTIVE car was stolen during a night time theft in Poole.

An orange BMW with the registration N926 xJB was stolen from a secure compound off Stanley Green Road at 10.35pm on Thursday, January 20, 2022.

The offenders are said to have used an angle grinder to gain access to the site. 

Officers investigating the theft are appealing for the public’s help by issuing two images of the stolen vehicle.

The car is orange, with a black bonnet and roof, and was deemed not to be road worthy at the time it was stolen.
