Police are on the hunt for a group of Polish men that stole a Mercedes convertible from a Swansea car garage.
According to the South Wales News, the robbery happened at around 1pm on Wednesday 2 September as four men went to the garage off Gorseinon Road, demanded cash from the owner then made-off in his blue Mercedes E350 convertible. The criminals were reportedly armed at the time and police have warned the public not to approach the men should they see them.
Criminals will often target car garages and dealerships because the vehicles inside can fetch a high price once they are stolen. That is why it is so important that these businesses have insurance to protect their assets against theft, which is exactly what a motor trade insurance policy is designed to do.
South Wales Police detective chief Inspector Jane Mackay said that an investigation into the incident was underway, with several leads being explored.
She added: "We are also appealing to anyone who has seen the Vauxhall Zafira or the Mercedes convertible since the incident on Wednesday afternoon to come forward.
"This was a serious incident and we are making every effort to trace and arrest those responsible. If anyone sees the suspect or the vehicles they should call 999 immediately and not approach them."
