Police seek teens who stole milk float and crashed into parked cars

Police seek teens who stole milk float and crashed into parked cars

Police in Kent are on the hunt for a pair of teenagers who stole a milk float and then crashed it into parked cars, causing "extensive" damage.

The pair took the float while its driver was out on his rounds in Dartford, at around 6:10am on July 17.

Witnesses told officers that the offenders, thought to be aged 16 to 18 years old, went on a short joy ride.

However, despite the electric vehicle's slow top speed, the hapless teens then lost control and rammed into cars parked at the side of the road, causing a large amount of damage to several of them.

The pair then abandoned the vehicle and made off on foot down an alleyway.

The force has now released an e-fit of the girl involved in the incident, who is described as a slim, white female of around 5'3", wearing a black leather jacket and blue jeans.

Her accomplice was a boy described as slim and white, with short, fair hair, wearing beige shorts and trainers and carrying a bag with a long strap.

"What probably seemed like a prank to them has caused a great deal of annoyance and stress to others," said investigating officer detective constable Gerry King.

"We will not tolerate people behaving like this in our streets."

"'We have compiled an e-fit of a female we believe could help us with our enquiries and ask anybody who recognises her, or who has information about the incident, to come forward."
