MEMBER THEFT BULLETIN

24/05/2017

Date of incident: Wednesday 20th April 2017. Location of vehicle: 85 Larch Street, Nelson, BB9 9RJ. Vehicle details: Mercedes Sprinter 31 CD1, white, VRN PJ12 RXN. The contents of this van were irreplaceable one-off vintage and classic car spare parts. It is suspected that the parts were not the target of the theft and will not be recognised for what they are, and consequently will simply be weighed in as scrap. As well as the parts there was a personal book recording years of information and detail and this too is irreplaceable. If you have any information relating to this vehicle, theft or the parts/ book, please contact: George Muir, Thomas Muir (Metals) Ltd., Phone (01592) 202 222 or e-mail eileenp@thomasmuir.net.
