Council Trying To Buy One That Has Been Vacant For 27 Years.
£30,000 worth of boots stolen
Thieves have stolen more than £30,000 worth of military equipment destined for soldiers fighting in Afghanistan from a lorry in Banbury.
Thieves cut the side curtain of the lorry transporting Nato Desert Boots to the UK, which was parked-up at a location in Banbury overninght on Sunday 6 and Monday 7 February.
They then stole the cargo making off with 337 pairs of British Military desert-style boots.
PC Chris Field of the Priority Crime Team said:
“This is an utterly despicable and selfish crime as this equipment was intended for British troops serving in Afghanistan.I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this crime to come forward, and I’d also like to speak to anyone who has been offered to buy these boots – have you seen them for sale on any websites or been offered to buy a pair directly?"
