A Norfolk business has offered £200 to find wheel thieves that targeted a Range Rover Sport in Great Yarmouth.

Staff at The Gearbox Centre were devastated to find a customer’s vehicle on pallets outside their premises in Sutton Road on Monday.

The theft was discovered at around 8.30am and is believed to have taken place overnight.

Christy Seaman who works at the centre said everyone was shocked and disheartened at the hit to their livelihood.

The 25-year-old said there was often not enough room in the workshop so it was usual to park clients’ cars on the road.

The customer she added had been understanding. The company however had pledged to get to the bottom of the crime or replace the wheels itself.

The company are offering a reward for anybody that can provide information that leads to an arrest.

Anyone with information should contact Norfolk Police on 101.
