Warning to all tradesmen...

Do you keep tools in your van overinight?

Hundreds of pounds worth of tools were stolen from vans in five separate incidents which occurred in Treharris, Aberfan and Abercynon on Monday night (22 June).

Officers are concerned that the thieves will strike again, and are urging van owners, especially tradesmen, to take the following advice:

Be vigilant to any suspicious noises or behaviour.

Try to park in secure, private places such as driveways or garages.

Park in well lit areas.

Try to prevent easy access to doors of vehicles.

Wherever possible, take valuable tools indoors overnight or when vehicles are left unattended.

If you know anything about any of the incidents, we want to hear from you. Call 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111...
