Heartless thieves have stolen four Shetland ponies, belonging to a disabled Cornish teenager.

Police think the two adults and two foals were taken from their stable in the Penpillick area of Par yesterday.

They were secured in their stable on on Tuesday evening at 9pm. The next day the stable door was found open and the ponies were gone.

Two of the missing creatures are full grown females with black and white markings.

The other two are both foals but are nearly the same size as the fully grown ponies. One is black and white and the other is grey and brown.

Police Community Support Officer Natalie Philips told Pirate FM they belong to a local family - and are looked after by their disabled teenager daughter: "They bring a lot of joy to her and she's really eager for them to come back.

"The Shetlands have been on display for the last few months. They were collected a week ago and have gone missing since yesterday."

Police are urging local residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.

They also want landowners to check their fields.

If you have any information please ring 101 quouting crime reference number GW/14/181.
