THIEVES have stolen £1m worth of sex toys from a lorry that was parked overnight near the village of Broughton, as reported by police.
According to Northamptonshire Police, the theft took place sometime between 1am and 6.30am on 18 September, while the vehicle was parked off the A43 near the village of Broughton.
The lock on the trailer was found cut.
The lorry had travelled from Felixstowe to make a delivery to Rocks-Off Ltd, a sex toy manufacturer and designer based in Kettering.
Rocks-Off Ltd supplies its own brand and branded sex toys including vibrators and intimate massagers.
The firm was awarded Sex Toy Manufacturer of the Year in the 2019 EAN EROTIX awards – a competition for adult products, toys and companies.
According to it’s website, the company has won 31 awards in total for its products. It has production facilities in the UK and China, with headquarters and warehouse facilities in Britain.
Detectives are now appealing for witnesses to the theft, which took place at some point between 01:00 and 06:30 BST.
But perhaps, as commented by a Facebook user on the Northamptonshire Police Facebook:
“The thieves are already in handcuffs”.
