Wanted: Man with a van (that isn’t his!)

It looks like this from behind. Can’t find a better image, sadly. (Edit: This is the front, not the back. Thanks to Jeepboy for pointing that out!)

Another day, another press release from the local plod. This time, a rather special caravan has been half-inched from Springhill Farm, near Sandhills at the foot of Shire Oak.That really is a shitty thing to do. If you witnessed something or have any information at all, please contact Walsall Police or Crimestoppers.

Police in Walsall are appealing for help to trace an unusual touring caravan which was stolen from a farm in Brownhills.

Thieves took the Italian made Rimor touring caravan from Sandhills Farm in Lichfield Road, Brownhills, between 1pm on Tuesday 24 January and 11.15am on Thursday 26 January. Only six of the vans are in currently in the country at present.

The owners of the caravan had stored the vehicle at Sandhills Farm and found it had been stolen when they came to tow it away.

The caravan, worth £14,000 is a Rimor touring van, model: New Polaris 420 Velcoe and is off white with a coffee coloured trim. The van has a couple of other identifiable features, including a one foot long mark on the wheel arch and the door of the caravan is on the opposite side to British made ones.

PCSO Alex Buck from Brownhills Police Station said: “The thieves removed a wheel camp from the caravan and will have either used a vehicle to tow the van away or pulled it onto a truck. We are appealing for anyone locally who may have seen anything suspicious in the area between 24-26 January to contact the police at Brownhills on number 101 or call Crimestoppers confidentially on 0800 555 111.

  1. JeepBoy says:

    That’s the front not the rear 🙁

  2. Is it? Oh, right, sorry.

    Never been a caravan person, so I’ll bow to your greater knowledge. I normally just see a big white wall coming toward me as the driver overtakes and forgets the length of his appendage…
