£3,000 collection of model cars stolen from Taunton home
A valuable collection of model cars worth thousands of pounds has been stolen in Taunton.
Police are urging model dealers and collectors to be vigilant after 143 scale die-cast cars, worth around £3,000, were stolen from a property in South Road between August 23 and 26.
The collection included names such as Corgi, Dinky and other foreign makes of well-known model cars and sports cars dating back to the 1960s.
Officers said many of the cars were unboxed but in a mint condition, and are appealing to members of the public, second-hand shop owners and model collectors to get in touch if they see or are offered model vehicles.
Anyone with information can call the police district targeting team at Taunton on 101.
