Wiltshire Police patrol outside Swindon Asda after ‘criminal activity’

Officers carried out patrols around the Orbital Shopping Centre and car park after receiving calls about criminal activity in the area.

Police advised that anyone with concerns should let them know as soon as possible.
Reporting crime or anti-social behaviour can be done online at https://crowd.in/a5HxyU or by calling 101 if it’s not urgent, or calling 999 if it is an emergency. 

Earlier this year, police investigated reports of a man using a Stanley knife to threaten a delivery driver at the Orbital at around 10.30pm on March 16.

A family visiting the shopping park over the Easter bank holiday got in touch wit the Adver after seeing two men appear to steal a motorbike from the car park.

In February, police stepped up patrols in the area after a WeBuyAnyCar dealership based in the car park was targeted in the early hours, when all six cars there were damaged along with several shopping trolley bays.

The vandal used bricks to smash windows and cause an estimated £10,000 of damage to the cars, which included a Vauxhall, Mitshubishi, and a Mercedes.
