Suspects steal prototype TVs, hijack truckHUNTINGDON — Three men hijacked a truck last week in Huntingdon, near Alconbury, making off with more than 75 prototype televisions, with a total value of more than 290,000 pounds, or more than $565,000.

The men burst into the cab of the truck about 2:45 a.m. Wednesday while it was parked at a layby (rest area), just off of the A14, according to a release issued by the Cambridgeshire Constabulary.

The televisions were sample models and the first U.K. shipment of the sets, which are aimed at the caravan and mobile home market.

The suspects threatened the driver, made him lie face down in the cab’s rear and drove along the A14 and onto the M6, the release stated. After the suspects stopped to unload the trailer, the truck driver was released unharmed in Fallows Way, Whiston.

Anyone who witnessed any stage in the crime is asked to contact the Cambridgeshire Constabulary at 0845 456 4564.
