5:20pm Wednesday 7th August 2013 in News
MOBILE phones worth £25,000 have been stolen from a delivery van in Bognor.
A delivery destined for the 3 Store in the town was stolen from a courier van nearby.
The white Vauxhall Mervano was parked in West Street in the town when it was broken into between 10am and midday on Tuesday (August 6).
A parcel containing £25,000 of mobile phones that was in the back of the vehicle was stolen.
Officers are keen to speak to anyone who was in the West Street area on Tuesday morning and could have seen someone acting suspiciously around the van.
A police spokesman said: “We have been given a list of all the stolen handsets and their IMEI codes so any phones we recover will be able to be traced back to the theft easily.
“Anyone who buys one of these stolen phones should bear in mind that the handsets will be confiscated by us and they will not get their money back.”
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting serial 951 of August 6 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
