Thieves took £250k of alcohol from Lutterworth warehouse

Correspondent 28th Feb, 2017

ALCOHOL worth just under £250,000 was stolen from a warehouse in Lutterworth.

A lorry, believed to have been using a false number plate, arrived at a warehouse in Magna Park to collect 26 pallets of alcohol in the early hours of Friday December 9.

After loading the shipment, the vehicle left the warehouse at around 5am and headed along the A5 towards Rugby.

DC Matt Garside who is leading the investigation said: “I am trying to trace the two men in these photos as they could have information that could help with police enquires.

“There is a possibility that the men could be from the Walsall or Wolverhampton area but if anyone recognises either of them please call me.”

Anyone with information can call Leicestershire Police on 101 and ask for DC Matt Garside, quoting crime number 16*406833.

A 39-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of a theft offence and has been bailed pending further enquiries.
