Cumbria police probe link between string of van raids

Police are investigating if there are any links between a string of raids on vans in which exhausts and catalytic converters have been stolen.

Crooks struck in Carlisle and Penrith, making off with the metal parts. Two Mercedes Sprinter vans were targeted at the Parcelforce site on Bank End Road, Kingstown, Carlisle, at the weekend.

At another nearby site on Brunthill Road two vans had their exhausts and catalytic converters removed overnight on Sunday.

A bid was made to steal an exhaust from a Ford Transit van at Carlisle Cemetery, off Dalston Road, at the weekend. And an exhaust system and catalytic converter was stolen from a Mercedes Sprinter at the Trade Copiers site on the Gilwilly Industrial Estate in Penrith during the same period. Call police on 101.
