Expensive cars that were stolen from homes in Kent more than two years ago, have been found in a shipping container at docks in Suffolk.

The Mercedes, that was taken from Paddock Wood, and an Audi S5 that was taken from Bexley, were found in the container at Felixstowe.

Police have also recovered nine other vehicles that were taken during burglaries across the south east from six other containers at the docks.

Heart's been told the cars are worth more than £369,000.

The containers had been booked by Jeffrey Duah, 40, and police have taken the unusual step of giving us his picture as they believe he might be able to help them with their inquiry.

Officers say he used to live near Kings Cross, London but hasn't been seen at the address since August 2008, although it's thought he is currently operating in the Tottenham area.

He has also used the names Peter Asare and James Asan and is described as:

  • slim built
  • around 5'6" tall
  • short black hair
  • wears glasses
  • may have a thin pencil moustache

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant  Richard Spicer said: 'We believe that, although we have recovered 11 vehicles so far, the offenders are still carrying out burglaries involving high value vehicles. We want to speak to anyone who may have information that could help the inquiry. In particular, we want to speak to anyone in the container rental industry who may have dealt with Mr Duah under this name or any other. We especially want to speak to Mr Duah in connection with these offences. Anyone who knows his whereabouts is asked not to approach him, but to contact us on 01622 652376.'
