Tools stolen

The Galloway News - - TOP WORK -

Tools worth around £1,500 were stolen from a works van in Kirkpatric­k Durham last week.

The ve­hi­cle was bro­ken into while it was parked in Church Road.

The theft took place some­time overnight between Thurs­day and Fri­day.

Drills, a cir­cu­lar saw, a ra­dio and a crimp­ing gun were among the items taken in the raid.

The in­ci­dent is one of five sim­i­lar hits on works vans re­ported to po­lice in re­cent days.

Con­sta­ble Ruairidh Matthews said:“We would urge those who carry tools in their ve­hi­cles to think very care­fully about where they park.

“Ve­hi­cles should be locked and se­cured at all times when parked up.”

Any­one who sees a crime in progress should phone 999 or 101 to re­port sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour.
