Dorset Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a series of thefts from vans in the Peacemarsh area of Gillingham.
The incidents happened overnight from 4 to 5 June in which an amount of tools were stolen.
Officers are reminding members of the public not to leave valuables in their vehicles – thieves know all of the hiding places.
The police also advise car owners to park their vehicles in a garage or on a driveway if at all possible and for all work vans to be emptied of tools overnight or apply extra security to their vehicles.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email [email protected] or by calling 101. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
