Washing machine thief gets clean away
Faulty appliance is stolen from outside Lyme home
A CHEEKY thief has stolen a washing machine left outside a Lyme Regis house for collection by a repair man.
The faulty appliance was taken from a garden path at King’s Way at around 12.30pm yesterday (Wednesday).
Its bemused owner watched as a man in a silver or white transit, with a child on board, loaded up the machine and drove off.
Community Beat Manager PC Richard Winward said they were keen to speak to anyone who saw the incident.
