Officers investigating three thefts from vehicles in Apsley are appealing for information and witnesses.
All three offences happened in the car park of Sainsbury’s supermarket on the Apsley Mills retail park between 8.45am and 11.45am on Thursday, June 11.
In the first incident, offender(s) broke into a white Ford Transit van and stole a bag containing a number of power tools including an electric drill and a heat gun. (41/45432/20)
In the second incident, offender(s) broke into a van and stole a laptop. (41/45518/20)
In the third incident, offender(s) broke into another white Ford Transit van and stole some carpentry tools, including a drill. (41/45433/20)
All the vehicles that were targeted were locked and secured.
PCSO Will Liddell, from the Kings Langley and Hemel Hempstead South East Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Each victim has lost items that were vital for their jobs and their livelihoods. Each vehicle was locked and secured, so offenders have forced entry in order to take what was not theirs.
“We are conducting enquiries but are appealing to anyone who was in the car park between the times stated to think back – can you recall anyone acting suspiciously? Please get in touch if you think you have any information.”
