POLICE are searching for three men in connection with thousands of pounds worth of car repairs not being paid.

The vehicle, a Nissan Navara, was taken to a business in Moorside Road, Colchester, for repairs worth thousands of pounds.

When it was picked up on 22 April, the people picking it up were not satisfied with the work and scheduled another appointment for the work to be carried out.

The car was taken but did not return for the scheduled appointment and no money changed hands.

The car has subsequently been sold.

An Essex Police spokesman said: "If you recognise the men or have any information you can submit a report online at www.essex.police.uk or use the 'Live Chat' button to speak to an online operator between 7am-11pm.

"Please quote incident the crime reference number 42/76107/21.

"You can also call us on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
