Theft of Mixer trucks
INCIDENT DETAILS
Six mixer trucks have been stolen over a 3 month period (July - Sept 2012) from CEMEX Readymix plants in the North of England (Scunthorpe, Chorley, Huddersfield and Halifax). In some cases retrofitted immobilisers were removed. The thieves were clearly professionals and appear to have taken some care in removing forensic evidence.
POLICE REACTION
Three different constabularies - suspect some (lack of) co-ordination issues
HEALTH AND SAFETY IMPLICATIONS
None
LEARNING POINTS
More capable immobilisers are required. Kosran is being investigated as a retro fit. It is of note there appears to be an active market in second hand trucks. As supply fails to meet demand theft appears to be an alternative
