Theft From Lodge Tyres
A report in the regional newspaper Express & Star revealed that thieves broke into the Lodge Tyres depot in Pleck Road, Walsall at the weekend and stole more than 200 tyres, valued at £50,000. According to joint manager Phil Williams, thieves made off with 129 truck tyres and 92 van tyres. The thieves disabled the depot’s alarm and forced open roller shutter doors before loading the tyres on to a lorry and driving off. Not surprisingly, Lodge Tyres’ business was badly affected by the loss of stock.
