DISTINCTIVE shoes worth £700 have been stolen from the back of a van in Harrogate.

The Daytona motorcycle boots, still in their box, were taken from a van parked on Mount Parade.

The owner, who noticed the doors to his van had been opened in December last year, didn’t realise they had been stolen until January 27.

The size 42 red and black boots have a diagonal white stripe which bears the word Daytona.

PC Leah Champion, of the Harrogate Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who knows anything about the theft or may have been offered the boots in unusual circumstances and ask that they contact me as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Harrogate police on 0845 6060247 quoting reference number 12110017879, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
