Tool burglary in Clayhanger: did you see these lads?

Untitled 9

Long shot, but do you recognise these lads?

You may recall that last week, I appealed for help from readers following the van burglary  that took place at Clayhanger, during the early hours of Thursday 4th September 2014. Tools and equipment were stolen, including screw/nail guns and a radio from a van parked on the owner’s driveway on the Allerdale Estate in Clayhanger.

I have been sent some video of the two lads witnessed walking around the area in the early hours. Do you know who they are? Of course, their presence may well be innocent, so they are invited to come forward and explain.

Two lads were seen at approx 2am. This van was seen entering the estate to the left at approx 3.21am and leaving at approx 3.37am.

The CCTV image was given to the victim of the crime along with the correct times as seen on CCTV by myself. The time stamped on the picture is from the screen shot taken yesterday morning.

If you’re offered cheap tools, car stereo equipment or gardening kit, think hard about where it might have come from, and by all means grub the people flogging them into the rozzers – the stuff is probably nicked. Next time, it could be your stuff they take.

Anyone with information is urged to contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
