2:00pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
Police are asking for the public’s help to identify two thieves who struck in a car park off Hall Street in Cross Hills on Saturday evening.
Officers say two men pulled up in a white van, possibly a Peugeot Partner, in the car park to the back of Tams restaurant at about 7.30pm.
They tried to force the locks on a Renault van, which was already parked there, but fled when they activated an alarm.
A police spokesman said: “During the attempt, several members of the public have entered the car park, and on each occasion, the suspects have jumped in the side door of their vehicle.
“The police would like to speak to these potential witnesses with regard to what they may have seen.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC James Dykes at Cross Hills Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, quoting crime reference 12130178263.
