An auto refused to budge from Stafford’s Move That Car Vehicle Recovery Ltd, early this morning.
When the crooks trying to steal the motor failed to get the engine going it seems to have caught fire.
The villains crept into the business at Derrington’s Boons Industrial Estate sometime before 5.40am, today (Dec 22).
Spreading auto blaze
Having managed to set light to the auto they were after the blaze they caused spread to six other vehicles and a caravan.
But the thieves did not leave empty handed. They swiped six televisions from the site instead.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to ring Staffordshire Police on ‘101’, quoting incident number 84, of December 22.
