APPEAL: Did you witness a theft in Uttoxeter?

We’re appealing for witnesses after a high value theft from a secure compound off The Dove Way.

It happened between 6.45pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday 27 October when offenders forced entry to the compound and stole a road roller worth nearly £15,000.

The roller, which is incredibly heavy, is an orange Hamm HD12VV twin drum road roller with a roll bar.

It’s believed that a white Ford Transit type vehicle was used to transport the roller and we’re keen to hear from anyone who saw one parked up at the side of the road on Tuesday evening.

If you witnessed anything suspicious please contact PC Rich Lymer at Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 271 of October 28. Alternatively, you can contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their Anonymous Online Form at No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
