The search to find a person who drilled into the fuel tanks of two vans has been closed - despite the getaway being caught on camera.
Hellesdon Leather in Mile Cross was left without its only means of travel after owner, John Milton, found that the company's vans were bled dry of fuel.
A police spokesman said: "Police were informed of fuel being stolen from two vans of a business in Mile Cross Lane in Norwich between 5.30pm on the June 8, 2022, and 9am on June 9.
"Approximately 15 litres of fuel were removed after holes were drilled in the fuel tanks.
"The investigation has been closed after all lines of enquiry, including CCTV and forensics had been exhausted.
"Should further information come to light this will be reviewed."
Mr Milton said at the time: "The vans are a major factor in running our business.
