“The suspects have not only stolen personal vehicles, but have also taken a large amount of coaching equipment, which forms part of the victims livelihood in providing sports training to able-bodied and disabled children and adults across the area.

“If anyone has been invited to buy the items, or has seen them for advertised for sale I would ask that they speak to the police. Enquiries are ongoing.”
