Hundreds of televisions worth about £62,000 have been reported stolen from a parked lorry owned by a Great Yarmouth based firm.
The theft is alleged to have happened at the Haughley lay-by of the westbound A14 between 7.30pm on Tuesday and 5.30am the following morning, while the driver is said to have been asleep in his cab.
Offenders are said to have forced entry to the lorry, which is understood to belong to a Norfolk firm based in the Great Yarmouth area. They stole 600 View Sonic 22-inch LCD televisions from inside the trailer.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is asked to call Dc Jon Chaplan on 101. Alternatively telephone Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
