Four men charged over truck thefts

Police in Cambridgeshire said they’d charged four men with a series of HGV thefts at services in the county.

Officers were called to Cambridge Services in Boxworth just after 1am on 4 October.

Four men were later arrested on Granchester Road in Coton, a village just outside Cambridge.

Three men aged 21, 30 and 30 from Leeds have now been charged with 20 counts of vehicle interference and one count of going equipped.

A 36-year-old man from Leeds has been charged with the same offences, as well as failing to stop.

They were all due to appear at Huntingdon Magistrates’ Court today (5 October).

The arrests came after hauliers complained to about thefts their drivers had endured at MSAs near Warwick and Keele.

A spokesman for one of the firms, M. Threlfall Transport, said: “The fact this happens so often and on paying sites is unacceptable and it feels like there is no prevention to this happening.”
