Appeal after theft of Caravan from Ockbrook Derbyshire

Alert message sent 23/06/2020 11:34:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

We are appealing for witnesses following the theft of a caravan from a storage facility in Derbyshire.

The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday, 14 June when thieves stole a Sterling Elite 580 caravan, similar to the one pictured, from a farmyard off The Riddings, Ockbrook.

It is thought that they entered the yard via nearby fields at around 1.30am when preparations were made for the theft of this van and an attempt at the theft of another.

Then at around 4.20am the blue ‘transit’ type van shown in the image, was seen to enter the yard via The Riddings and tow the stolen caravan away. It appears that this blue van was displaying false number plates.

The theft is being investigated by PC Alice King: “I would ask that if anyone saw anything suspicious on that morning or the days leading up to it that they make contact with me.

“The van was displaying false registration plates, and whilst I realise that the image of the occupants is not clear on the CCTV footage, it has got distinctive silver coloured wing mirrors and front grille, so if anyone has seen that van in the area then please speak to me.

“We are aware of the stolen caravan’s identification markings and so would ask if anyone has been offered a similar van for sale that they also come forward and speak to us.”

If you have any information please make contact with Alice using any of the following non-emergency methods, quoting reference number 20*301177:
