Please be aware that we have had over 40 crimes committed in the Stoke and North Staffs areas in the recent past months relating to the theft of power tools and hand tools from workers vans.
In the main Ford Transits and Citroen Berlingo's have been targeted.
There have been various means of entry including the use of force on side doors, smashed windows and forced door locks. Not to mention those vehicles left insecure.
Please pass this message on, remind your neighbours especially those with vans containing power tools to remove them and if possible to garage their vehicles leaving them secure with the alarm on.
