STOLEN STEAM LORRY

Recommended Posts

Sorry to have to share this, a friend has had his Scania curtain side lorry stolen last night. In the back was his Clayton Steam Lorry. Please can people keep an eye out, and also be aware of this theft, it’s certainly making me think about the security of our vehicles.

You just can't under estimate how low people will go to make money. This is appalling behaviour but alas not uncommon these days.

Lets just hope it is found soon and still in one piece.

From what I have been told the lorry and it’s contents have been found, Apparently in a layby and no damage to the cargo. Police are there and hopefully they may catch the scum who did this.

But, I’ve taken it as a wake up call for the security of my stuff!

Well that sounds like some positive news.

They most likely didn't know how to remove the steam lorry from the truck which makes it too hard to quickly get rid of the Scania as no fence will touch it then.

If they didn't check inside when they took it imagine their surprise when they did open up the curtainside and saw the Steam lorry!

I was hoping (and rather expecting) that that would happen. 
If they are in the truck-stealing game then they are likely to know that there is no way to sell a steam wagon without it being recognised, and it makes most sense to abandon it and run.
