Criminals have stolen approximately two tonnes of coal from a Lancashire business.
Police officers investigating the crime believe that between August 27 and 28, someone has broken into the E & S Fuels unit on Lune Industrial Estate by removing some of the fencing at the rear of the compound.
Once inside, they have been able to take two tonnes of coal from inside a crate, it is believed, using a vehicle before leaving the compound.
Officers investigating the theft are appealing for anyone with any information to come forward.
PC Matthew Entwistle said; “I would ask if anyone had seen any suspicious activity in or around the area either on that night or in the days leading up to the offence to come forward.”
Anyone with information about the crime can contact police by calling the new non-emergency number 101 or alternatively, information can be passed via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
