Hardened criminals facing a stiff sentence

The assortment of goods destined for Rocks-Off Ltd in Northamptonshire, was stolen from a lay-by while the driver slept.

Police want to hear from anyone who might have witnessed the theft which took place between 1am and 6:30am on Wednesday 16th September from a lay-by on the A43 between the A14 and Broughton village.
