Theft from Motor Vehicle: Chell Heath

Report of theft from a motor vehicle received at 9.50am this morning (22 Dec) at an address in Alcester Close, Chell Heath.

Offender/s gained entry to a van and stole three battery drills, two saws, and three other drills.

Chief Inspector Adrian Roberts, Commander for Stoke-on-Trent North Local Policing Team (LPT), said: “Drivers can take a few simple measures to reduce their chances of becoming a victim of this sort of crime.

“Many criminals often just take advantage if an opportunity appears – if they go past a car and see a mobile phone on the seat or a Sat Nav in its cradle; they’ll break in and take them. If the vehicle looks empty, they are far more likely to leave it alone. By keeping things out of sight, your vehicle may present less of an open invitation to them.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 167 of 22 December.
