Hunt for 40ft Transporters

Detectives are appealing for information about four stolen trailers used to transport metal.

One, loaded with pressed steel was stolen from a company on the Berry Hill Trading Estate in the early hours of Sunday.

Three other transporters, loaded with steel coils, were stolen from the same company in June.

The trailers, which are 40ft long and covered with a grey tarpaulin, each contained several thousand pounds worth of steel.

They have 'Fabreprest Steel' written on the sides.

Detectives want to hear from anyone who has seen the units or knows where they are.

They are also keen to hear from anyone who has been offered steel in suspicious circumstances.

Anyone with information should contact DC Glenn Roberts or DC Andy Durber at Stoke-on-Trent CID on 08453 302010 or they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
