Police are appealing for information after a vehicle was taken without the owners consent in Northumberland.

It happened between 4pm on Tuesday, February 17, and 1.30am on Wednesday, February 18, when offenders forced entry into a storage yard at the old Fire Station, Albion Terrace in Cramlington and took a three tonne dumper truck.

It is believed the offenders drove the truck around Northburn Estate before abandoning it on a cycle path near to Durham Road and making off. 

Enquiries are ongoing into the incident and anyone who witnessed it is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191 quoting reference number 200 18/02/15 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The appeal comes as part of Operation Soundwave - targeting opportunist thieves and burglars across the force. For more information visit:
