Thefts from Vans

Alert message sent 02/06/2020 15:56:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

A number of works vans were entered during the late evening of 31st May and the morning of 1st June.  Vans were entered in Sellars Road, Hardwicke, Tuffley  Lane, Grange Road and Larchwood Drive in Tuffley and in Newark Road, Hempsted.  There were also similar offences reported in Berkeley, Frampton on Severn and Slimbridge.  It would seem all these locations are close to the A38 suggesting the same offenders may have been responsible.  Although some of these thefts were unsuccessful, there was a significant selection of power and hand tools stolen and most of the vans suffered some sort of damage.

If you have any information regarding these crimes, please call the police by ringing 101 and quote incident number 100 of 1st June.  Alternatively report it online at    

While many types of crime have shown a dip in number since the lock-down started, thefts from cars and vans are still occurring fairly regularly.  Where you can, please remove all valuables, work tools and equipment from your vehicles whenever you leave it, and especially at night. Also consider fitting an alarm to the storage area of your van.

Always report suspicious activity straight away and if you believe a crime is being committed then dial 999.

You can also report information regarding criminal activity anonymously to Crime Stoppers by ringing 0800 555111.

This is the end of the message.
