Police appeal following the theft of a caravan from a Flintshire service station
South Flintshire Police have launched an appeal following the theft of a caravan from Rhydymwyn Service Station on Thursday, 8th February.
The theft took place at around 6.45pm, while the service station was still open.
Officers are keen to speak with the driver of a black pickup vehicle, which was reported to have been in the vicinity at the time of the theft.
The vehicle was seen heading towards Mold on the A541 Mold Denbigh Road shortly after the incident.
A video shared on social media by the service station team shows the moment the caravan is driven away.
In an effort to gather crucial evidence, the police are appealing to anyone in the area with dashcam footage to come forward.
South Flintshire Police are not only seeking footage that could capture the suspects’ vehicles but are also asking the public to report any suspicious behaviour observed around the time of the theft.
According to a post on Rhydymwyn Service Station’s Facebook page, the theft was a well-orchestrated operation.
“It involves a black pickup which first turns down Vicarage Road and then sits and waits opposite until a car pulls into the front pumps, blocking the cameras and with their headlights on full. It then makes it hard for us to pick out their registration number,” the post states.
