Detectives are hunting for a stolen vehicle, seen in Halifax, which has been used in a number of crimes in the region

The vehicle was stolen from an address in Woodhouse Drive in Keighley between 11pm on Sunday, October 9, and 7am on Monday, October 10.

On Tuesday afternoon at around 1pm the vehicle was spotted at the scene of a burglary on Dorchester Road, in the Fixby area of Huddersfield.

The suspects attempted to gain entry to the property, but were disturbed by the burglar alarm. The alarm alerted an neighbour who took a photograph on his mobile phone of the vehicle and suspects.

The neighbour, a 35-year-old man, was then assaulted by the suspects who stamped on his face and his mobile phone. He received minor injuries.

Later the same afternoon, around 2pm, the vehicle was sighted at the scene of a burglary in Thorneycroft Road in Keighley

Around 3.55pm on Tuesday, the same vehicle has been captured on CCTV at a petrol station on Pellon Lane in Halifax, where the occupants of the vehicle made off without paying for fuel.

The suspects are described as three Asian males.

The stolen vehicle is a three-door Ford Fiesta S Edition. It is black, with a red roof, red wing mirrors and red trim. The vehicle is bearing false registration plates and is believed to be BV64 MHN.

Detective Constable Victoria Catania, of Kirklees CID said; “The car stolen on Monday is incredibly distinctive and would certainly stand out in most places, and I am certain that people will have remembered if they have seen it or its occupants who may have been acting suspiciously.

“I would appeal to anyone who has seen this vehicle this week, who knows anything about any of the incidents mentioned, or who knows where the vehicle is now to get in contact. Enquiries are ongoing.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC Catania at Kirklees CID via 101 quoting 13160484614. Information can also be passed to the anonymous independent crime fighting charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
