Appeal for information after theft from vehicles in Bracknell
Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following thefts from tradesmen’s vans in Bracknell.
Following a lull over Christmas and New Year the thieves targeting our local trademens’ vans have returned.
Overnight between Thursday 4 and Friday 5 January, two vans parked in Pewsey Vale, Forest Park were broken into and several thousands of pound worth of electrical hand tools were stolen. Offenders drilled out a lock on the rear doors of one van and cut a hole through a panel of the second.
The same night another van parked in Brokenhurst Road, Martins Heron was broken into and tools were stolen.
Overnight between Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 January a van parked in Inchwood, Birch Hill, another parked in Pakenham Road, Easthampstead and a van left in the Sports Centre car park were targeted and tools stolen.
If you have any information relating to any of these incidents, please call our 24-hour enquiry centre on 101 or if you wish to remain anonymous you can pass information via an independent charity called Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
