Skip Hire company offers reward to catch thieves

A Riddle Skip Hire are offering £5,000 to anyone who comes forward with information which will lead the police to identify and prosecute the thieves who have targeted the firm twice, most recently breaking into the skip hire company’s yard over the August bank holiday weekend.

The latest attack on the skip rental firm resulted in 2 tonnes of copper being stolen from the yard at Horncastle in Lincolnshire, along with £35,000 worth of scrap metal. A Riddle Skip Hire stepped up their security at their depot following an earlier break in, however the thieves managed to cut through the newly installed razor wire fence which the rental company had thought would stop robbers gaining entry.

The two burglaries at the skip hire yard cost the company dear with thieves making off with £70,000 worth of property altogether. The company owner says they’ve had more problems with thieves in the last 12 months than in the whole 45-year history of the firm.
