Warning after vans ransacked

Have your say

THE police are reminding workmen not to leave their tools in their vans overnight.

The appeal comes as thieves raided two vehicles on the same night, a case which officers believe to be linked.

In the first reported incident, thieves bent the back door of a Renault Kangoo parked on Peasey Hill, Malton, in the early hours of Sunday morning and took a £600 petrol Stihl saw and a yellow Dewalt hand drill.

On the same night, a Vauxhall Combo van parked in Sainsbury’s car park was also broken into.

The owner reported that 
ladders valued at £40 had been taken as had a £180 Makita radio and a bag with three drills, including a £400 Makita drill, among other tools.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC 1923 Sarah Owen at Malton Police Station on 101.
