FOUR pallets worth of music equipment valued at £50,000 has been stolen from a lorry sitting in the Great Dunmow A120 lay-by.

Police are appealing for information and witnesses after thieves struck during the night between February 22 and 23.

Sometime between 11pm and 7am the criminals gained entry to a secure trailer attached to a Scania cab, causing around £200 of damage, and stole electrical music equipment, including microphones, speakers, cables and attachments.

Dunmow's Pc Ashley Howard said: "This theft occurred in the lay-by on the A120 prior to the Dunmow South off slip.

"I'm sure motorists would have passed by the location overnight and I would ask anyone who saw anything suspicious to contact me.

"All the musical equipment was boxed and brand new, and I would also ask members of the public to contact me if they become aware of such equipment being offered for sale."

Police are appealing for anyone with information about this crime to contact Dunmow on 0300 333 4444, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
