Jackets worth £90,000 stolen from haulage yard in Barnsley

Have your say

Jackets worth more than £90,000 have been stolen from a haulage yard in Barnsley.

The jackets were taken from a trailer after thieves broke through security fencing at A Davis Transport Ltd, Fallbank Industrial Estate, Dodworth.

They took more than 5,500 garments, carrying the TOG24 jackets in around 280 boxes to their getaway vehicle, parked in a nearby field.

Police are now appealing for anyone with information about the sale of the jackets to get in touch.

DC Steve Mason, of South Yorkshire Police, said: “The offenders will have taken a long time to load up the vast quantity of jackets, which were men’s, women’s and children’s in different styles and sizes.

“We believe the thieves are part of an organised criminal group and that this was a targeted attack.”

The theft occurred between noon on Saturday, December 7, and 4am on Monday, December 9 last year.

“They are likely to have distributed the stolen items over the Christmas period, passed them to handlers or sold them to members of the public in South and West Yorkshire.”

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
