 Hi Bob

Saturday night (26th August 2017) at 9:45pm we were broken into.

The thieves did three journeys in car and on foot and took the contents of our garage!

They took the last load at 10:45.

If anyone is offered fishing tackle/clothing, power tools and a bike. inbox me or Jim.

It happened in Brownhills! Just off short street. WE HAVE CCTV and police have been informed!

Videos of the car and the bloke leaving on the bike not the full cctv as they made numerous journeys over the hour.

Photo not the best quality as it’s a still from the video. £100 reward for name!

Any information will be passed on to police!


Thanks for letting me know, and my sympathies for the loss. This really is most shocking.

If you’re offered fishing kit, power tools, the Viking bike or other goods, 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.

Some of the stuff taken. Images sent in by Haley Woolley.

Anyone with information on the recent spate of thefts is urged to contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or you can speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
