Police seek teens who stole milk float and crashed into parked cars


Police in Kent are on the hunt for a pair of teenagers who stole a milk float and then crashed it into parked cars, causing "extensive" damage.

The pair took the float while its driver was out on his rounds in Dartford, at around 6:10am on July 17.


Witnesses told officers that the offenders, thought to be aged 16 to 18 years old, went on a short joy ride.

However, despite the electric vehicle's slow top speed, the hapless teens then lost control and rammed into cars parked at the side of the road, causing a large amount of damage to several of them.

The pair then abandoned the vehicle and made off on foot down an alleyway.

The force has now released an e-fit of the girl involved in the incident, who is described as a slim, white female of around 5'3", wearing a black leather jacket and blue jeans.

Her accomplice was a boy described as slim and white, with short, fair hair, wearing beige shorts and trainers and carrying a bag with a long strap.

"What probably seemed like a prank to them has caused a great deal of annoyance and stress to others," said investigating officer detective constable Gerry King.

"We will not tolerate people behaving like this in our streets."

"'We have compiled an e-fit of a female we believe could help us with our enquiries and ask anybody who recognises her, or who has information about the incident, to come forward."
