HIGH value Mercedes, BMW and Jaguar models are among 11 cars stolen from a garage overnight.

The cars were reported stolen from Tones Garage, in Hartlepool, at about 5am today.

 Police  say the break-in at the Oxford Road garage could have happened any time after midnight.

One of the cars, a Jaguar, has since been recovered from the Newholme estate in County Durham so officers investigating believe some of the vehicles may have been driven out of the area.

Two further vehicles were recovered on Sunday morning and by 5pm, eight of the vehicles had been recovered. 

The cars which are outstanding include high value Mercedes, BMW and Jaguar models.

The outstanding vehicles:

PN14FMZ VW Touareg White

KS67JVH Mercedes E220 Black

NL15LPK Mercedes C200 Silver

Detective constable Holly Angus said: “This is a report of a significant theft of vehicles worth thousands of pounds. We would appeal to anyone who has any information, including dashcam or CCTV, to contact us on 101, with the reference 078865.”
