At around 9.20am on Sunday 13 August 2017 a member of the public contacted Dorset Police to report that a Tesco Bag for Life had been found hidden inside a plant pot outside The Potting Shed off High Street.

The bag contained items of silverware including spoons of various sizes, a small box, a cigarette case and a hip flask.


Police Constable Glen Caddy, of North Dorset police, said: ‘Some of the items are engraved and are therefore particularly distinctive.
