Police in hot pursuit of boilernappers
Thieves stole £80,000 worth of boilers from the back of a lorry during a late night raid in Milton Keynes.
The boilernappers slashed the sides of the HGV, before offloading 177 combi boilers, each weighing more than 50kg.
The gang of thieves had a lorry and a car to help them getaway with their heavy haul.
Police believe the boiler heist was conducted by a well-organised team of people who would have worked up quite a sweat trying to move the boilers from the HGV to the thieves' lorry.
Police want to hear from anyone who may have been offered a boiler at a discounted rate. The police appeal made this week, follows the late night raid which took place sometime between midnight and 4.30am on October 9.
Anyone with information can contact PC Sarah North-Keeling on 08458 505505.
