Police in Cheshire are looking into the theft of an Elddis Affinity 550 caravan, and believe it could have already been sold on to an unwitting customer.

It is thought that the four berth caravan could have been bought in the Birmingham area between Saturday 13th May and Monday 22nd May.

Officers are now looking to locate the tourer, with the police force urging anyone with information to come forward, either by contacting Cheshire Police Rural Crime Team on 101 or by visiting the Cheshire Police website and quoting 21000313929.

If you would rather provide anonymous information about the theft of the Elddis Affinity 550, you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 too. The police force also said: “whoever bought it is not in trouble, as it’s very likely they had no idea that the caravan was stolen”.

The appeal for information follows on from a recent AA survey which revealed there had been a 24.9% increase in vehicle thefts in 2022, in comparison to 2021, highlighting the importance of good caravan security, through products such as a caravan wheel lock.
