Caravan found eleven years after it was stolen

A stolen caravan has been found at a small-holding in Warwickshire eleven years after being taken from a property in Derbyshire.

It was discovered during a visit by Warwickshire Rural Crime Team last Thursday with Warwickshire Trading Standards Animal Health department to ensure the owners were conforming to current regulations

Checks confirmed the caravan had been stolen from Derbyshire in 2011 and officers were satisfied the small-holding owners had not knowingly purchased a stolen caravan around four or five years ago.

Details of the seller were gained and officers are following up and the victim of the original theft was also informed of the find.

The caravan was seized and returned to its current true owners – an insurance company.

Officers have reminded people to check a second-hand caravan’s history through companies such as CRIS or HPI before handing over any money.
