Over the past week Nottinghamshire Police have received four reports of work vehicles being broken into overnight in Bingham.
Various tools have been stolen and entry has been gained by either forcing the locks on the doors, or via insecurities. Nothing has been seen or heard by any of the victims.
Police are asking residents to be mindful of these incidents and to remain vigilant. They advise those who own a works van to ensure wherever possible that high value tools are not left in the vehicle overnight.
Bingham PCSO Liam Halford added: “If the van is empty, then allow people to see that it is empty. It is also advisable to reverse vans so that they are tight against walls or garage doors when possible, thus minimising access to the rear of the vehicle.”
Any suspicious activity can be reported to police on 101. If you believe you are witnessing a crime in progress then please dial 999.
