Lorries targeted by drinks thieves

16 January, 2009

Champagne and vodka have been stolen from parked lorries in two separate incidents on the same day.

On Monday thieves stole £40,000 of Champagne from a Hungarian-registered truck on the A40 at Ross-on-Wye after slashing the curtains of the HGV.

Nine pallets of Nicole díAurigny Champagne were taken and West Mercia Police is asking the trade and the public to be on the look-out for the wine being offered cheaply.

Police in Lincolnshire are appealing for information after nearly 2,000 bottles of vodka worth more than £9,000 were stolen at Gonerby Moor, after it too had its curtains slashed.
