UPDATED: Milk van stolen in Hyndland as driver made deliveries

Vehicle found abandoned 24 hours later

UPDATE: 29.06.22. The vehicles was recovered within 24 hours of being taken.

Mills Milk director Adam Mills said the van was found abandoned just seven minutes from where it was taken.

He said police had told the company that there was little chance of the vehicle being seen again.

Adam said: “A local resident called in this morning and we have someone with the vehicle now.

“We believe this has been left in a quiet area for a few days so the thief could determine if it has a tracker or not.

“Luckily it was spotted today before they got back to it.”
