An Arctic Truck that police say was stolen has been recovered along with high-value cargo on board. The truck, originally used for long-haul transportation of goods, was discovered on Hall Lane in Farnworth yesterday. Not only did they find the truck, which itself is worth multiple thousands of pounds, but on the back of it sat goods worth approximately GBP150,000.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police Bolton South said: “Bolton Farnworth Neighbourhood Team have recovered a stolen Artic Truck with around GBP150,000 of materials on it today from Hall Lane.”

The GMP spokesperson did not speak to whether any arrests or charges were made or what they plan to do with the stolen vehicle or the valuables on board.
