Richmond Police say they recovered this stolen Dreamliner caravan in Alstonville

Richmond police say they’ve recovered a caravan stolen from Lismore last week.

Officers say a 2021 Model Dreamliner Caravan was stolen from a Lismore address around 8:45am on the twenty-fifth of June.

Investigations reportedly led to execution of a search warrant at an Alstonville address on Monday this week.

Police say they found and seized the stolen Dreamliner Caravan as well as a ‘New Age’ Gecko caravan at the same address.

The two caravans are said to be worth about a hundred and thirty thousand dollars and police say investigations are ongoing.

They’re urging anyone with information to contact local police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, with all information to be treated in strict confidence.
