Appeal for information as stolen motorhome is abandoned in Buxton

Police are appealing for information to trace two men who stole a motorhome in Leek, Staffordshire before driving it into Buxton, the Buxton Advertiser reports.

The theft took place on January 2, when the motorhome was driven to Buxton and abandoned at the entrance to Green Lane, off the A53 at 6.05pm.

The suspects then got into a white Audi A1 or A3.

Officers believe that somewhere in Buxton, the men stopped and changed the number plates on their vehicle before leaving the town.

This could have been anywhere in Buxton, but is most likely to be somewhere off Green Lane. Officers think this happened between 6.05pm and 6.30pm.

They may have also done the same thing in the hours before the theft of the motorhome.

Anyone with CCTV or doorbell footage, particularly on the Green Lane are, is asked to check it between 6.05pm and 6.30pm on 2 January.

Anyone with information should contact Staffordshire Police, quoting incident 493 of 2 January.
