Police keen to reunite stolen power tools with owners

Evesham Editorial 21st Dec, 2016 Updated: 21st Dec, 2016   0

STOLEN power tools taken from vans in recent months have been found and police are looking to reunite the tools with their owners.

A number of power tools, believed to have been stolen since September, were recently discovered in the Broadway and Badsey areas.

West Mercia Police are now keen to reunite the tools with its rightful owners. A photo showing some of the recovered items has been released in a bid to encourage the rightful owners to come forward.

Anyone who recognises the property or has had items stolen over the past few months and is able to prove ownership should call Phil Schoenrock on 101.

In the wake of the thefts, officers have released tips to remind residents how to keep items safe and secure.

They include:

  • Locking vehicles at all times and marking your tools using Smart Water or registering them free on www.immobilise.com so if they are stolen and recovered, the owner can be identified
  • When leaving your vehicle overnight, parking in well-lit areas and near your home if possible with valuables removed from the vehicle
  • If you cannot remove the valuables, ensure they are stored securely in your vehicle and do not leave them on display
  • Considering fitting your vehicle with an immobiliser or alarm, which can act as a deterrent and will draw people’s attention to the vehicle if it is broken into.

Anyone who would like to speak about additional security measures is urged to call Evesham Safer Neigbourhood Team on 101.
