Thieves target vans in Morton

Have your say

TWO vans were broken into in the Morton area last week.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the break-ins which happened on Tuesday night.

Thieves stole a drill from a van in Rosehip Road, while a van in Paddington Way was also broken into but nothing was taken.

Anyone with information about these crimes or who has had their van interfered with should contact police on 101.

To prevent further thefts police are asking van owners to think about security.

They advise owners to park their vehicles in well lit areas and restrict access to side and rear doors by parking the van near a wall wherever possible, or install extra security locks.

Owners should also consider removing valuable tools overnight and security marking any tools kept inside the vehicle.
