Can You Help Trace Robbers' Van?

I've had an email this afternoon from Surrey Police looking to locate a white van used in a robbery at a petrol station on Kiln Lane, Epsom this morning.

Apparently two men wearing balaclavas entered the back of a delivery van which was being unloaded at the Sainsbury's garage and stole a large quantity of cigarettes. Officers were called to the scene at around 7.40 and are now looking to trace the van which the suspects left the scene in. This was a white van - possibly a Citroen - with the registration number YE03 ZZA.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Antony Archibald, said:
"I would appeal to anyone who saw this vehicle either prior to the offence occurring or after it left the scene to share this information with us. It is possible the offender will now have dumped this vehicle somewhere and I would appeal to anyone who knows its whereabouts to contact us as a matter of urgency. This was a terrifying ordeal for the delivery workers and we will do all we can to find those responsible."
If you have any information on this incident, you are urged to contact Surrey Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) quoting reference P14007724. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
