A reader living at the Chester Road end of Friezland Lane in Shire Oak has been in touch with me asking to share with readers that he had his van broken into and tools stolen last night (Tuesday 21st-Wednesday 22nd April 2015).
The reader wrote:
My husband’s Leamore Windows van was broken into over night, they stole all his power tools – mainly Dewalt jigsaw, Dewalt multi case including reciprocating saws, Bosch jigsaw, Makita impact drivers etc.
They dismantled a security box in the side of the van containing the tools.
We are at the Chester Road end of Friezland Lane. If anyone hears anything could you please contact me or the police.
[I have contact details and will pass them on if required – mail me BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com – Bob]
My sympathies for the loss – what scumbags. Nicking a bloke’s work tools is the lowest of the low. If you’re offered cheap tools think about where they might have come from, and don’t be afraid to dob the sellers in to the police. It could be your house or car they do over next.
