A few days ago, a resident living on Grantham Rd was approached by a man in a white van seeking directions to Harby. On examining the address given he noticed that it clearly had a post code and asked why the driver hadn’t used his sat nav to locate it. The response was that he had forgotten! The driver then asked if the resident would be interested in buying a generator. The offer was declined and immediately reported to the police, who attempted to intercept the vehicle in the village but were unable to locate it. They have asked for any future sightings or offers to sell generators be reported without delay. Thefts of generators in the area are on the increase!
The vehicle was a white transit size van with no markings reg SK67 PBO. The driver was a white male 25-35 years old with a short beard and an accent, possibly eastern European.
