Plundered! Cannons used in Pirates Of The Caribbean stolen from Devon village
Two cannons believed to have been used in the Pirates Of The Caribbean films have been stolen from a village in Devon.
Police said the one-and-a-half-tonne cast-iron props were taken from a farm in Dalwood, near Axminster, some time between 28 May and 1 June.
The owner of the cannons told officers that they had been commissioned for use in the blockbuster Disney franchise, which starred Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Detectives investigating the burglary are seeking the public’s help to reunite the replica cannons, worth around £5,000, with their owner.
Devon and Cornwall Police would like to identify a large, black recovery vehicle with a sheeted load that was seen entering Dalwood at around noon on 1 June.
Officers have CCTV images of the seven-and-a-half to 10-tonne truck, which is believed to have had a chequered flag across the cab.
A police spokesman: “Officers would like to identify the vehicle pictured in CCTV images from the A35.”
They added: “The owner of the cannon was told on purchasing them that they had been commissioned for use on the film set of Pirates Of The Caribbean.”
