Whereabouts of stolen Bridgestone tyres still a mystery
While the HGV trailer containing £50,000 worth of tyres stolen in Brierley Hill last month has now been found, police are still working to ascertain the tyres’ current location. According to Dudley Police, the articulated trailer was loaded with 650 Bridgestone tyres when it was stolen from CVT Vehicle Services on the weekend of July 16 to 17. These tyres were to be delivered to various vehicle manufacturers. According to Police Constable Ian Leech, who is leading the enquiry into the theft, the stolen tyres are marked with a red and yellow dot – indicating they cannot be sold on to independent retailers.
“Unfortunately there is no CCTV footage available for us to identify the offenders but I would ask member of the public to contact Dudley Police if they know where these tyres might be stored or if they have been approached to buy or sell the tyres on,” PC Leech commented. Anyone with relevant information can contact Dudley Police on 0345 113 5000.
