Police look to trace owner of stash of suspected stolen clothing

Police are urging market stall holders and shop owners to check their stock after a stash of suspected stolen sports clothing was handed to officers.

The clothing, estimated to be worthy between £600 - £1,000, was found by a member of the public in Lancaster on Thursday 30th December.

It is not known who the clothing belongs to, but officers believe it may have been stolen from a local trader.

PC Phil Salliss, Lancaster police, said: “The clothing is wrapped and appears to be stock rather than someone’s personal belongings. I would ask local market stall traders and shop owners who may have shut down over Christmas to check their lock ups and other storage places to see if anything is missing.

"The clothing is distinctive and the rightful owner will be able to provide a description of it.”
