Security alarms stolen from lorry by A14 while driver slept

PUBLISHED: 10:33 21 November 2016 | UPDATED: 10:47 21 November 2016



Two pallet-loads of security alarms have been stolen from a truck parked by the A14 while the driver was asleep.

The driver of the lorry woke up at around 4am to carry out checks having parked up at the side of the dual carriageway.

Police said when he looked at the side of the vehicle the curtain had been slashed so that the offenders could see what was inside.

He then discovered the rear doors had been opened and two pallets of alarm systems had been taken.

The foreign-registered lorry had been parked up near Cambridge among other vehicles.

Police said the theft occurred between 8pm on Wednesday November 9 and around 4.10pm the following day.

Anyone with information about the theft or anyone offered to buy burglar alarms is asked to call Cambridge police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

  • I fell very sorry for the driver. Its bad enough with the lack of truck stops in the UK let alone thieves targeting vehicles.
