Police are investigating the unlawful taking of a truck containing $300,000 of cosmetics. The truck was parked last night on Redvers Drive in Belmont, Lower Hutt, and was discovered missing this morning.
It was found this afternoon in Stokes Valley. A member of the public heard about the stolen truck on his radio and just after 3pm he noticed it parked in Thomas Street. It is unknown how much, if any, of the cosmetics were stolen as we are waiting for the owner to arrive. [Later reports say three-quarters of the cosmetics have been stolen.]
The stolen truck is a 1992 Isuzu NRR coloured white, Registration Number WR1968. It has ‘Whypaymore Ltd’ in black text on both doors of the cab. On both sides of the truck body is a picture of a TV cabinet and musical notes with the word Melody across the top. On the rear doors is a phone number 0800 589 0808.
The cosmetics are all of the top brands such as Revlon, D & G, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Hugo Boss etc. The types of cosmetics are perfumes, eyeliners, lipsticks, blushers, nail polish etc. All of these goods are stored in cardboard boxes in the truck. Also in the truck were 40 trestle tables (folding tables).
Anyone who saw the truck or is offered very cheap cosmetics, can they please contact Lower Hutt Police on 5602600 or alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
