Concern over suspicious van collecting charity bags in the Alfreton area

Police are urging residents to be alert to a suspicious van which may have been fraudulently collecting charity bags in the Alfreton area.

Officers have received reports of a white van which has been picking up air ambulance charity bags containing clothing and other belongings.

PC Mark Scott of the Alfreton Town Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “It is not known whether or not this van has any connection to the official charity, and people are concerned that the items they are donating are not going where they intended them to.

“If you notice anyone collecting charity bags which seem suspicious, or don’t seem to have any connection to that charity, then please contact the police with a description of any people involved, vehicles and a registration number if possible.”

To report any suspicious activity in the area call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police, except in an emergency when the number is always 999.

If anyone has any information about these incidents please contact PC Mark Scott or PCSO Mark Rogers on 101, or send them a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of the website by clicking here.

Alternatively, you can also pass on any information about crime anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
