During the last month there have been a number of tradie's work trucks broken into with electrical tools stolen across the area. Generally, the tools have been stolen after breaking the tool box locks & forcing the lid open.
Tradies, whenever possible, keep a record of the serial number of your tools and clearly mark them with engraving or some similar marking. Whenever possible park vehicles close to the house or in a secured yard. Most of the thefts have occurred where a vehicle has been left overnight on the roadside or the front yard.
If someone tries to sell you cheap tools, beware they may be stolen. If you can get some details of the person and car registration if possible & call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
