MILLIONS of pounds’ worth of Apple products were stolen from a lorry during a robbery on the M1 near Rugby.

Thieves stole items worth £5million after they tied up the lorry driver and a security guard on the southbound slip road at Junction 18 of the M1, between 7.45pm and 8pm on Tuesday November 10.

The lorry was driven to Eldon Close in Crick, where the robbers transferred the trailer on to an awaiting truck, and drove off leaving the lorry driver and security guard behind.

The truck was later found in Lutterworth, where it is believed the offenders transferred the 48 pallets of Apple products into a third vehicle.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a number of vehicles on the slip road at Junction 18 which may have looked out of place, or who may have dash-cam footage of the area.

They would also like to speak to anyone who may have been offered any Apple products for sale in unusual circumstances, or who knows of anyone who is selling such items at low-cost prices.

Anyone with information or who may have witnessed this incident is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101 quoting reference number 20000595599 – or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
