Power tools stolen from work van in Lee Close

Between the 22nd and 23rd of July, between 2030hrs and 0600hrs a van in Lee Close, Charlbury was broken into and tools stolen.
If you have any information please contact police on 101 and quote crime report number 43150206825.

It has also been brought to my attention this was not the only incident and that other work vans in the area have been targeted. At this time those incidents have not been reported to police. Anyone who has been a victim of this crime could you please report it on 101 and an officer from the neighbourhood team will come out to investigate. You may have vital evidence such as finger prints or other forensic evidence the police can use to catch these criminals.
If you store tools in your van please take any precautions you can to prevent these people breaking into them.

Double check you have locked your vehicle and that the alarm is set.
Whenever possible, remove tools, stock and other equipment from the van, especially when leaving it overnight.
Where possible mark your tools with your postcode.
One of the most effective security measures is a reinforced deadlock or deadbolt. These are simply additional steel locks that work independently from your standard door locks.
If you do have any information please contact police on 101
