A spokesperson for police said: “On Wednesday, officers from Lancashire Police’s Specialist Operations unit stopped a Honda Civic car in Longridge.

“Seized from the car were 11 bin bags which contained electronic goods, cosmetics, hardware, pens, clothing, and food items.

“The property is of high value – several thousand pounds worth – and we are looking to reunited stores with their goods.

“If any stores between Barrow-in-Furness and Garstang – we think it will be large shops involved – suspect goods were stolen yesterday (3rd July), we ask them to contact us.”
