Rather belatedly, we have received a warning and an appeal for information from Thames Valley Police in connection with recent thefts from vans in Haddenham.
Overnight during the period Tuesday 25th March to Wednesday 26th March, thefts were reported in Stanbridge Close, Fort End, Willis Road and Roberts Road. Power tools were taken from inside the vehicles.
A variety of ways were used to break into the vans, either by smashing the windows, drilling the locks or in one case the vehicle had been left unlocked.
Please remain vigilant and make sure any suspicious activity is reported immediately to the Police. Where possible obtain a description of them, along with details of any vehicle that they may be using, especially the registration number.
Please don't leave it to someone else to make the call — you might be the only witness.
Make sure you lock your vehicle when unattended and remove any valuables from inside. If your vehicle has an alarm make sure it is armed.
PC Hugh Catlin from Aylesbury is the officer dealing with these crimes. He would like to hear from anyone that might have seen or heard anything in relation to these reports.
If you have any information please call PC Catlin via the 24 hour Police Enquiry Centre number 101.
If you don't want to speak to the Police or give your details you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or report it online at the Crimestoppers website.
