I just witnessed someone try all the doors/locks on each of the vans used by the builders who are working on the house next door to us. Thankfully, they were all locked so he didn’t get entry to any of them. Once he had finished trying them, he then got into the passenger side of a car and drive off. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the number plate of the car. This was at 10.36 am today (Jan 12th). I spoke to the builders to let them know. Apparently, one guy has had his van broken into and his tools stolen THREE TIMES already outside the property since they have been working here.
Obviously, this is a targeted attempt by the thieves but I would advise anyone/everyone to ensure that any vehicles you have are secure.
