Thieves take £170,000 worth of Scalextric sets

Thieves have stolen Scalextric sets worth more than £170,000.

They stole an entire trailer containing 866 of the brand new Scalextric Digital Super GT sets (worth £200 each) from a lorry park near Detling Aerodrome.

In the early hours of Monday, the trailer containing the sets was unhooked and attached to another vehicle, which was later found abandoned in North Woolwich, east London.

Detective Constable Catherine Baker, from Kent Police, said: “This was a planned operation and the offenders clearly targeted the trailer, knowing the high value of its contents, estimated collectively to be worth over £170,000.”
