A gang of thieves stole tyres worth more than £100,000 in a raid on a motoring manufacturer’s warehouse.
The gang escaped with around 15,000 tyres and police suspect they used a number of vehicles to carry out the raid in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Officers have appealed for information about the break-in at Schedl Automotives System Service, in Oxonian Park, in Kidlington, which took place between 12.10am and 1.50am on Sunday.
Det Sgt Stephen Haddock, who is investigating the theft of the tyres believed to be worth around £105,000, said: “I believe that these thieves could be a professional team, as the theft of so many tyres would have had to have been an organised operation.
“There were three vehicles seen in the area at the time: a car, a curtain-sided lorry and a Target Rental van.
“Anyone who might have seen these vehicles should call me on 08458 505505.”
