Van burglary in Norton Canes: be on your guard, people

Norton seems to be having a particular problem with vehicle crime at the moment. Imagery from Apple Maps.

My attention has been drawn to a spate of van break-ins in the Norton Canes area of late – friend of the blog Jamie Bailey contacted me this morning and asked me to run the following appeal by his friend, Leane Woolley:

If you live in Norton beware of thieves! My Dad and brothers vans were broken into last night. Drills and tools were taken. If anyone tries to sell any equipment with LW written all over them they are my brothers.

If anyone hears anything let me know!

These thefts occurred in Norton Green  Lane last night (Thursday 17th/Friday 18th  December 2015) although there seems to have been a real rash them of late judging from other social media postings. If you’re in the area, it might be wise to remove tools and equipment from vehicless overnight if you can.

Nicking a working person’s tools is lower than low. I hope these thieving buggers get caught quickly.

If you’re offered cheap tools or other equipment think hard about where they 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 Staffordshire Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    My van got done the other night on the Hednesford Road just over the border in Brownhills west. It has been reported to West Midlands Police and I know some got done the same night on the Hussey estate too.
