iPods stolen from Currys.digital, Witney

Police are appealing for witnesses after thieves stole iPods from the Currys store in Witney.

At around 5.30pm on Tuesday (4th Dec) two men carried the glass case in which the MP3 players were displayed out of the shop covered in a sheet. They were seen loading it into the back of a van, containing a third man, parked in the Waitrose car park.

They escaped with 260 iPods, worth around £29,000.

The R-reg white Transit van used by the thieves was seen to drive out of the Waitrose car park to the Witan Way junction with Langdale Gate roundabout, turn right along Langdale Gate, and then left into Church Green.

The two men are white and aged between 25 and 30. One has long blonde hair and was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms; the other has dark hair, had stubble and was wearing casual clothes.

Anyone who witnessed any part of the incident, or has other information which could assist the police enquiry, is urged to contact DC Kevin Middlecote, of Witney CID, via the 24-hour police enquiry centre on 0845 8 505 505. Alternatively, if you donít wish to speak to police or leave your name, contact the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
