Dog food stolen

THIEVES STOLE £9,000 worth of James Wellbeloved dog food from a lorry parked in a lay-by.
The thieves cut into the side curtains of the vehicle, which was parked in a lay-by on the A14 near Harrington, Northamptonshire, between 7.45pm on June 17th) and 5.30am the following day, and stole the goods from inside.

Scott Owen, purchasing manager for James Wellbeloved’s parent company, Royal Canin, said he was shocked. ‘It's not something we would expect. The police told us 10 pallets of nappies were taken from another lorry. It was a shock, particularly to think about the amount they managed to steal. It's quite a bulky product. It comes in 15kg bags and a massive amount was taken. They must have had a number of vehicles to take the products away; it must have been fairly organised.’

James Wellbeloved began trading in 1993.

Northamptonshire Police would like to speak to any potential witnesses, or to anyone who might have been offered James Wellbeloved food for sale at anywhere other than a registered pet shop.
