AN aeroplane has been stolen from the garage of an 87-year-old man in Basingstoke.
The Pulse XT model sports plane was stolen from a garage in Mallard Close in Kempshott, Basingstoke between February 13 and February 20.
There is concern that the plane could cause an injury to someone who doesn’t know how to operate it as the engine is quite powerful.
The model aircraft is red and white and has the words ‘Pulse XT’ printed just behind the cockpit.
PC Lee Stanbrook said: “This item is of sentimental value to the owner and he is concerned that it could be dangerous to those who don’t know how to operate it.
“If you know anything about this theft or have been offered this item for sale, please contact me.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Stanbrook at Basingstoke Police Station on 101 or call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
