Be alert – power tools stolen in Brownhills van burglary

Take care on the Watermead Estate. Image Kindly supplied by Pete Hummings.

A reader living on the Watermead Estate in Brownhills (The new one between the Pelsall Road and Tesco) has been in touch with me asking to share with readers that her partner had his van broken into last night (Friday 18th August 2017).

Hello Bob

Can you post on the Brownhills Blog please?

My husband’s van got broken into last night – we live opposite B&M. The burglars took all his tools.

All drills and saws have his name ‘Adam’ engraved on them.

Please can people keep a look out. Thank you

The toolbox has been found empty – stolen were two Makita drills, a white site Makita radio and a hand saw.


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.

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

Cheers all.
