Police are warning bows and arrows stolen near Liskeard could be lethal in the wrong hands.
Three thousand pounds of archery equipment was taken during a break in just outside Menheniot
It happened sometimes between the 15th February and the 8th March.
A police appeal said: "A large amount of archery equipment was stolen from a rural location just outside of Menheniot village.
"The burglary occurred to a shed at a property outside the village of Menheniot near Liskeard, sometime between Saturday 15th February and Saturday 8th March.
"Archery equipment valued in the region of three thousand pounds including a crossbow, long bows, arrows and distinctive detailed quivers were stolen.
"Police are warning that not only are these items potentially lethal in the wrong hands but that a long bow drawn by someone other than the person it is normally used by can potentially cause significant injuries to the user and are asking people to be vigilant.
"These items are very specific and police urge anyone to contact them if they have any information or are approached by anyone selling such items."
Anyone with any information are asked to contact police on 101 quoting police reference BD/14/293 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or report online at www.Crimestoppers-uk.org
