‘I’ve just come from the police station I’ve identified the stolen equipment and they have 2 suspects in cells at Burton police station the police officer also had other people to speak with regarding other break-ins so well done Staffs and West MIids police’

Great news – cheers to Adam for letting us know!

Sadly, yet another vehicle break-in in Brownhills has occurred, this time in Lindon Close when a local tradesman had tools and equipment stolen from his van between the hours of 7pm last night and 8am today, Saturday 23rd January 2016.

Adam Derry sent me the following message:

Hello Bob

Last night between 7pm and 8am this morning I had my van relieved of its contents of a Hilti rotating laser level and 2 Stabila brickwork levels – these are tools that I earn a living from.

There is a cash reward for there return or any info to who is responsible.

Thanks for your help


There are few things lower than stealing a working man’s tools – please help if you can. In the meantime, make doubly sure your vehicles are locked and try and park where you can keep an eye on them. Let’s hope the police catch those responsible for the sudden rash of vehicle break-ins soon.

The people doing this are more than likely doing it to raise cash from the proceeds of selling what they steal. If you know of anyone hawking around tools or other stuff that seems to be dubious, please grub them into the police – the stuff they’re flogging is probably nicked.

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

Please, lets see if we can nail these thieving buggers.
