Over £6,000 worth of Nescafe coffee was stolen from a lorry parked up near Potters Bar and police are trying to trace the highly-alert thieves.

The boxes of Nescafe coffee were stolen from a flat-bed lorry parked at the South Mimms service station.

The pallets of coffee, worth £6,311 in total, were stolen between 10pm on February 20, and 5am on February 21.

PCSO Kleanthis Kourtoubelides said: “It would have taken some time to unload the boxes and they would have needed a big vehicle to put them in.

“Did you see anyone acting suspiciously or have you been offered large quantities of Nescafe coffee for sale?”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting J1/17/746.
