Police in Calderdale are appealing for anyone offered specialist climbing equipment, parachutes and other outdoor gear for sale in a deal that sounds ‘too good to be true’ to get in touch.
A large amount of valuable items were taken during a burglary at an address on Nutfield Street, Todmorden.
West Yorkshire Police, who have released details today, said the incident happened on a date and time unknown between Monday April 8 and Wednesday April 17.
All of the equipment was taken from a store room inside the property. Power tools and associated items were also taken.
DC Craig Pearson of Calderdale CID, said: “Given the amount of equipment taken we suspect the thief/thieves will have used a van to transport the goods and taken a long time to move them from the property.
“The items are also highly specialised so I would urge anyone with a particular interest in outdoor activities including climbing / mountaineering, mountain biking, caving, canyoning and parachuting to get in contact.”
