Police hunt VW Caddy stolen in Birmingham used ‘for crime’
Police are chasing a stolen white VW Caddy van in south Birmingham on the Worcestershire-Longbridge border which has been used by crooks in an alleged killing spree. They want the public to have sharp eyes and contact them if they spot the van, which is likely using stolen license plates.
The VW was stolen in a car key break-in in Birmingham on Wednesday night (March 16) and has since been used in other crimes over the weekend, police officers said. One involved thieves attempting to take a Mercedes in Northfield.
Police have released a photo of the VW Caddy and say it may be parked near Longbridge. Anyone in the area, from Northfield to Rubery and Barnt Green to Worcestershire, could help the police track the van.
