A gang of thieves has stolen three “high quality” cars from a second-hand dealership in Blackpool.

Detectives believe the cars, worth a combined £50,000, were specifically targeted in an organised burglary at Blackpool AutoMart, on Lytham St Annes Way, on Sunday.

Between 9pm and 10.30pm, the thieves broke into the garage and took a white Audi S Line, black Golf GTD, silver Mercedes C320.

It is less than three months since a similar burglary, when Vauxhall Vivaro van and an Audi RS6 were stolen from the same garage on October 7.

DC Mark Anson said: “We do believe these vehicles were stolen to order and think at least four people were involved.

“If anyone saw anybody acting suspiciously in the area on the night in question or in the days prior to the burglary please contact us.

“I would appeal to anyone with any information about either burglary to come forward.

“I am also keen to speak with anyone who has any information which could lead to the recovery of the vehicles.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
