Police stumbled upon a haul of 29 stolen vehicles – believed to be worth more than quarter of a million pounds – after tracking a stolen moped on Boxing Day.
Last Thursday, officers from Hackney’s emergency response team pursued a stolen moped after they were alerted by a tracker activation on the vehicle.
They found the moped inside one of 28 individual garage units at the junction of Geffrye Street and Hows Street in Haggerston.
Officers found three stolen vehicles altogether. The moped was located inside a stolen Ford Transit van.
Following the incident, officers obtained warrants to open the other garages. In total 29 vehicles were recovered, along with stolen number plates and a dismantled cannabis factory.
