The local work van break-ins continue: Beware, folks

Beware if you own a van in the Brownhills and Walsall Wood area. Imagery from Google Maps.

A quick warning to people with work vans and appeal to folk in Brownhills for information – the rash of vehicle break ins continues with another incident on Sunday night/Monday morning 7-8th May 2018 in Lindon Drive Brownhills.

My van was broken into last night (Sunday-Monday 6th-7th May 2018) on Lindon Drive, Brownhills.

Red generator and red hilti breaker taken any one hear of anyone selling please let me know.

This seems a fairly common break-in method with transits. Image posted on Facebook by Stu Thomas.

These scumbags have targeted someone trying to earn a living. It’s heartbreaking and my sympathies for the loss.

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 gear 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 West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    My father in laws shed was broken into as well. They took a brush cutter. Also in Lindon Drive.

  2. Van and minibuses have become an easy target, as I well know to our own cost. Still trying to sort paperwork out.
