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."
