A Motorhome was stolen in Skipton on 13th Nov

....and the good news is that the police saw it on the A671 above Whalley where the North Yorks police stopped it and arrested the driver who was from the Manchester area. enquiries ref 12150202000 (North Yorks police).
I just wanted those who have suffered in the past, to know there are some good outcomes.

Tell us more.

Were the original plates still on it?

Was it stopped because the Police recognised the description of the stolen vehicle, or was it stopped for some other reason and then it was identified as stolen?

Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

What can I say in response to that, something about one eye on the window etc..

cabby
With his one eye on the van, and the other up a chimney
With a bow-wow-wow, fa-la-la-la-la-la-dee-dee
Bow-wow-wow!

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

It is not at all uncommon these days for vehicles of all descriptions to be stolen as the result of burglaries.

The simple reason being that the tea-leaf requires the vehicle keys to overcome the immobiliser and where do most people keep their vehicles keys??????? Right by the front door so they are ready to hand when going out. (Dont you?)

Its exactly the same with ladies jewelry, its always within 2m of their bed (isnt it???)

Burglar bill is WELL aware of the above.

Andy

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Short answer : NO. You see blondes are not as dumb as urban legend would have it!

I know no more about how or why the motorhome was discovered other than it was first spotted by a policeman although not stopped at the time. Later it was stopped and recovered.
I am guessing that the thief was not one of the brightest and may not have altered the number plate or an ANPR camera picked it up.
Stolen motorhomes, once reported as stolen may have problems getting an M.O.T. as the DVLA records should recognise it in the UK. Mine was stolen once following a break-in and the keys were found. Not by the front door but hanging on a key rack so advertising where they were. We know better now.
