Melksham firm offers £1,000 reward on exhaust theft
11:00am Sunday 29th September 2013 in Melksham
A training firm in Melksham has offered a £1,000 reward after the exhaust was stolen from one of its vans.
Thieves broke into the Avonside Enterprise industrial park in New Broughton Road early on Monday and took the part, worth £1,500, from a Mercedes Vito.
Managing director Alec Burden said: “We didn’t get very good CCTV footage, but we did see them take the exhaust off and load it into the back of a white Bedford-style pick-up.”
The firm provides training for apprentices in the telecoms industry and its fleet of three vans is used across the country.
Mr Burden said: “We’re offering a £1,000 reward for information which leads to a prosecution, in complete confidentiality.”
The crime has been reported to police, who urged anyone with information to call them on on the 101 general police number or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
