Suffolk Police launch appeal following van theft from Uplands Way, Thorpeness




Police are appealing for witnesses following the theft of a van from a property in Thorpeness.

Between Tuesday, August 31 at 8.30pm and Wednesday, September 1 at 8.15am, a blue Vauxhall Vivaro was stolen from outside a home on Uplands Way.

The van, registration NW03 BUY, is described as having a distinctive large metal roof rack on it, with two scratches on the left side and a split in the wheel cover.

A bag of 15 Callaway golf clubs were in the van, and included amongst them a G5 Ping driver club.

There was also a gold tag from Turnbury golf school in Scotland. The golf clubs have sentimental value to the victim as they belong to his deceased father.

The owner of the vehicle thinks the thief may have had to stop at a petrol station to refuel, as there was very little fuel inside the van.

Anyone who has witnessed the van, knows of its whereabouts or saw any suspicious activity overnight should contact Suffolk police via 101 or the police website, quoting crime number: 37/48203/21.
