TO ALL VAN DRIVERS

We have seen an increase in van break-ins across several force areas

Power tools are the main target

We are appealing for information after £5,000 worth of power tools were stolen from a van in Friars Street, Bridgnorth.  The theft occurred overnight between 8pm on the 4th of November and 00:40am on the morning of the 5th of November.  This may be linked to a theft from a van that took place a few days earlier in Bridgnorth.

We are keen to hear from anyone who may have any information relating to the theft of these items or that may have been in the area around the time of the incident and heard or seen anything suspicious.

There are some simple but effective things you can do to help protect your property – where possible remove all valuable items from your vehicle before leaving it unattended.

We are also encouraging the community to call us on 101 if they see anyone acting suspiciously around a vehicle.
