Stolen goods campaign launched by police

A campaign deterring people from handling stolen goods in the lead up to Christmas has been launched by Lincolnshire Police and Lincolnshire Crimestoppers.

A spokesperson for the campaign said: “If you buy something that is knowingly stolen it is always at the expense of someone else and you are doing nothing other than keeping burglars in business.”

Crimestoppers has asked anyone to report suspicious transactions to them on 0800 555111.
