WILTSHIRE Police are appealing for witnesses after a large amount of cash was stolen from a lorry in Swindon.

The incident took place whilst the lorry was parked on Moredon Road, opposite the row of shops on Blair Parade, at approximately 11.45am on Friday, March 7.

A male suspect was seen loitering around the lorry for a few minutes before entering the cab of the lorry and removing a white padded envelope which contained almost £2,000 in cash.

The suspect is described as a white male, wearing a dark hooded top with a reflective orange worker-style gilet over the top, with black trousers and white trainers.

Anyone with information should contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.

I`m amazed that £2000 was left unattended and not under " Lock and Key " ! I wont say any more but I`m sure that someone will.

Sounds like a set up. Door not locked. Thief knew what to take. Hoodie up.
