Neighbourhood Watch : note from 2 December


Over the last three nights I have been running a proactive patrol operation across the beat targeting theft from vehicle and burglary, with various colleagues from the force assisting me each night.  Last night at approx. 02:30 hours myself and two colleagues out on proactive nights patrol had three guys in custody in a small transit connect van in brixworth with a selection of power tools and garden tools in the back after it made off from us.

The items in the rear are;

Stihl petrol strimmer with a ‘garden machines’ sticker on it.  for those who don’t know, they are based in Kingsthorpe so I would imagine that will be a fairly local owner.

Stihl petrol hedge trimmer.

Stihl petrol power unit and hedge trimmer extension.

Stihl petrol garden blower.

Dewalt radio / battery charger system from the DS range.

Dewalt circular saw in black case

Dewalt drill set in black case

Dewalt ds 300 tool box covered in white plaster X2

Dewalt jigsaw in box with JIGSAW written across the box in black pen

4 foot cardboard tube sealed up with overnight delivery stickers on it and also a Travis Perkins label relating to MKT HARBOROUGH branch.

A silver flight case.

Due to wanting a full forensic examination of the vehicle these items were in, I haven’t at this time got any further details of the kit or any markings on any of it.

PLEASE can I ask for you to share this email with key contacts across the area to try and assist us in identifying a victim for these crimes FROM THE LAST 24 HOURS. 

Any information , please call 101 and quote incident 80  -02-12-2018.

Please call the control room if you do have any information as I will not be in a position to answer calls until 7pm tonight.

Keep em peeled.
