A £1,000 reward is on offer after a valuable machine was stolen from a Market Rasen business.

Police are appealing for information after an injection mould, worth around £100,000 was taken from RPC Containers on the town’s Gallamore Lane Industrial Estate on the afternoon of October 1.

The offenders pulled up in a 4x4 vehicle at about 4.30pm.

Three got out and opened the roller shutter doors to a tools garage.

They then backed in and loaded the machine, which weighs around a tonne.

The equipment, which shapes plastic containers, is vital to the completion of a current contract worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

The owners are desperate for the machine to be returned and are now offering the hefty reward to anyone who comes forward with information leading to a conviction.

Anyone with any information can call DC Kevin Kay on 0300 111 0300, quoting incident number 347 of October 6 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 55111.
