Theft from Van in Meir Park

Report of a theft from a motor vehicle received at 10am this monring (9 Dec) from an address in Canberra Crescent, Meir Park.

Offender/s gained entry to a van and stole tools, including two Dewalt beam lasers, two Dewalt lasers, a Hilti screw gun, a Milwaukee screw gun, a Dewalt radio and Pulsa 800 nail gun.

Chief Inspector Rob Taylor, Commander for Stoke-on-Trent South 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 187 of December 9.
