Road Roller Theft At Thorpe Willoughby


1:07pm 17th September 2013

North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information about the theft of a road roller which occurred in Thorpe Willoughby near Selby.

It happened on the new building site on the A63, on the outskirts of the village towards the bypass roundabout, over the weekend of 16to19 August 2013.  

The road roller is a yellow Bomag 120-4and would have had to been removed by a lorry or trailer, say officers. They add that it belongs to Caddick engineering of Leeds and staff reported their suspicions about a white transit van with a registration similar to “P493 OLA”, which was on the site on the previous Monday (12 August) with no authority to be there.  

Officers have been conducting extensive enquiries and are now requesting the public’s assistance to help determine the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

In particular, they are appealing for any information to help locate the yellow Bomag road roller and for potential witnesses to come forward who may have seen it being removed from the site over the weekend in question.

Anyone with any information that could assist with this investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Gareth Gummerson.
