A COMPANY is offering a �2,000 reward for the safe return of one of its new trucks after it was stolen over the Easter weekend.

Camel Sand and Gravel, of Westerfield, had the yellow one ton Thwaites dumper taken from a garden in Felixstowe Road, Nacton, between 6pm on Sunday and 9am on Monday.

Carol Grayling, company secretary, said they are offering a �2,000 reward for the safe return of the vehicle, which they have only just bought.

“It was locked in but someone broke through the gate to get it out,” she said. “It looks like whoever it was went back last night but luckily we had moved the other digger off site.

“It's frustrating because obviously it is a hassle that we don't need. Not only will we have to buy a new dumper now - the one we had was only a year old - but we also have to spend time taking things off the site everyday.

“We lose about three hours work that way taking things backwards and forwards; it's time we could be using for other things.

“Hopefully this reward will encourage someone to come forward. The dumper has been placed on the Thwaites missing register so if it goes wrong no one will be able to buy new parts for it.”

Anyone who has information that could help in the recovery of the dumper should contact Camel Sand and Gravel on 01473 281281.
