The thieves then transferred the trailer onto an awaiting truck and made their escape, leaving their victims behind.


The raid took place on the southbound slip road at Junction 18 of the M1, Northamptonshire, between 7.45pm and 8pm on November 10.

There they transferred the trailer onto another truck, and drove it about nine miles to the town of Lutterworth where the 48 pallets of the Apple goods were loaded into a third vehicle.

Police said they wanted to speak to "anyone who may have been offered any Apple products for sale in unusual circumstances, or who knows of anyone who is selling such items at low-cost prices".
