Suffolk police are investigating a spate of thefts from transit vans across the county they believe are linked.
Overnight on Wednesday October 12 and Thursday October 13, thieves broke into secure white transit vans in Woodhall Road and Tudor Road in Sudbury, Pightle Close in Elmswell, Spencer Way in Stowmarket, Primrose Way in Needham Market, Seymour Drive in Haverhill and Plummers Dell in Great Blakenham.
The locked vans were all parked in driveways and had power tools stolen from inside.
Di Matt Connick, from Suffolk Police, said: “We believe these crimes are linked and would like to urge tradesmen across the county to remove their valuable tools and work equipment from their vans overnight and store them in a secure location elsewhere.
“We would ask that owners take down serial numbers and descriptions of their equipment in order to assist with identifying items should they become victims of crime.”
Police would like to hear from anyone with information about the thefts.
They would particularly like to speak to three men who were seen attempting to access a transit van in Haverhill overnight on Saturday 15 October before they were disturbed and made off in a black Audi A3 with a 59 plate.
