Thieves get away from Pulham with 21 tonnes of steel
RAIDERS made off with steel valued at £40,000 from a commercial yard in Pulham, police said.
The 21 tonnes of fabricated steel was on a trailer which was stolen from Snashall Steels at Pulham Business Park on the evening of Sunday 13th January.
Offenders broke through fencing to gain access to the site and used a shunter truck that was on site to move the trailer out of the yard.
PC Gary Mitchell of Gillingham police said: "We believe the thieves transferred the trailer to their own vehicle, which must have been parked a short distance away.
"The trailer is quite distinctive having blue fairing down the sides and the word Gilliards on it.
"The steel is valued at around £40,000 and this crime has caused a considerable financial loss to the victim."
Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area between 7.40pm and 10.40pm on that day or has been offered steel should call Dorset Police on 101.
