Milk floats from the doorsteps of Crosspool homes

Thieves who are stealing milk from the doorsteps of Crosspool homes could force our local milkmen to quit.

Local milkman Russell, who delivers dairy supplies to homes across the Crosspool and Lodge Moor area, explained: “In all my years of doing my round, this is the worst for doorstep milk theft. I’m shocked how brazen they are. They follow me round, in what I suspect is a black four wheel drive vehicle. Not only do they steal pints of milk they also take the milk crates and covers. It’s happening all across my round and it’s got to the point where I having to hide the bottles.”

The police would like to hear from anyone who has any information or CCTV footage of the culprits and or of the vehicle used in the crime. Contact the police 101 or if caught in the act ring 999.
