Showroom raiders snatch cars

A gang of brazen thieves broke into a car showroom in the Cotswolds - and drove away in three of the vehicles that had been on display.

The raid on the Priory Motor Company in Faringdon Road, Lechlade took place between 11.10pm on Wednesday and 12.05am on Thursday last week.

A Gloucestershire police spokesman said "They carried out a search of the showroom before stealing keys for a silver Audi A3 (registration number MW12 UNX), blue Volkswagen Golf (registration number SB08 YDW) and silver Mini Cooper (registration LF03 WVA) and driving them away.

"They also stole several iPads, keyboards and television monitors, as well as cash, during the break-in.

"Enquiries are ongoing but anyone who believes they may have seen these cars or has any information about this crime should call 101 and quote incident 71 of 4 October."
