Crimestoppers and Lincolnshire Police are launching a campaign to deter people from handling stolen goods.

A spokesman said: “On the lead up to Christmas, and with people being on tighter budgets, the temptation for a bargain may be higher.

“However, Crimestoppers is making people aware that if you buy something that is knowingly stolen it is always at the expense of someone else and you are doing nothing other than keeping the burglars in business.”

Crimestoppers is urging people to report any suspicious transactions on 0800 555 111 or call the police on 101.
