Officers investigating the theft of a three-ton rock breaker that was stolen from a construction site in Liverpool have issued images of the machine and the van believed to have been driven in the area during the incident.
At around 11.30am on Wednesday 23 November it was reported that a white Ford transit van gained entry into a construction site on Bankfield Street and stole a 3-ton rock breaker valued at £5000. It was also reported that around 2,000 tons of white diesel was taken from the premises. The vehicle then left the site at 11.36am.
An investigation is underway in the area and anyone who witnessed the incident, has any information or CCTV footage is asked to contact police.
Inspector Paul Rannard said: “These types of crimes can have a great financial impact on businesses and the staff involved who use this machinery in order to do their job and earn a living.
“I would like to appeal to businesses and anyone who was on Bankfield Street who may have any information about this van. This might range from knowing who was driving it, seeing someone being picked up, or capturing further images or footage on CCTV and dashcam devices.
“If you recognise or have seen the rock breaker pictured online or at other sites please let us know as it could be what we need to identify the suspects and bring them to justice.”
