North Yorkshire Police are appealing for information after two 4x4 vehicles were stolen from the same street in Whixley, North Yorkshire last weekend. Whixleyis a small place within the triangle created by Harrogate, York and Boroughbridge.
A black Land Rover Defender, with the registration X5 HYG, was taken from a house in Stonegate, Whixley, and a silver-grey Defender, with the registration YH06 YKC, also being stolen from another property on that road.
The second vehicle has been described by North Yorkshire Police as 'quite distinctive' as it has black steel wheels with off-road tyres, a black front bull-bar, a roof-bar with spotlights, a snorkel on the driver's side wing and chequer-plate on the bonnet and sills.
