Boxing star’s car recovered after burglary, other valuables still missing
Police investigating a burglary in which items belonging to Olympic boxing champion Nicola Adams were stolen have recovered a missing car.
The grey Hyundai Veloster Turbo was found at about 8.20am today parked in Sandringham Way, Alwoodley, after a member of the public called police.
However, boxing equipment and other items that were in the boot when it was stolen were no longer in the vehicle.
Another car remains missing.
The Leeds-born star withdrew from the England Boxing Elite National Championships following the incident.
Appealing, Adams said the items are of “sentimental value” to her.
Detective Constable Will Tsang, of Leeds District Neighbourhood Crime Team, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who saw the vehicle being left in Sandringham Way any time after it was stolen on Wednesday morning.
“The silver Ford Focus TDCi, registration YH09DLU, that was also stolen in the burglary remains outstanding at this time. We would still like to hear from anyone who has seen that vehicle or who knows its current whereabouts.
“Our investigation is ongoing and we would still like to hear from anyone who has been offered for sale any of the very distinctive items that were taken.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Tsang at Elland Road via 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
