Theft from Work Vans

Alert message sent 08/01/2022 09:26:00

Information sent on behalf of Staffordshire Police

During the night of 6th-7th January 2022, three tradesmans vans were broken into. Two vans from the Westlands Road area of Uttoxeter, and one in Pennycroft Road, Uttoxeter. All the vans contained tools etc. During the incident in Pennycroft Road, at 0100am the offenders were disturbed and made off at speed in what we believe was a grey or black Vauxhall Corsa or similar, towards Bentley Road, Uttoxeter Two vehicles may have been involved in these offences. CCTV enquiries and house to house enquiries are going well, which will hopefully lead to information that will bring these offenders to justice. During the enquiries, it has been noted that a tall, male jogger, in a tracksuit with stripes down the legs, and possibly a white headband, was jogging along New Road at the junction of Bentley Road, Uttoxeter at the time of the offences. This jogger may have information or may have seen suspicious behaviour or vehicles, at the time of the offences. Do you know who this jogger was, at 0100am in the morning ? or was it you jogging in the early hours ?
These type of offences bring inconvenience and cost to hard working tradesmen/ladies. New tools have to be purchased, on-going jobs get delayed. Like I said we are working hard to resolve these offences, and Staffordshire Police work tirelessly to prevent, deter and investigate such crimes. Working together with the communities we serve, as I always say is often the key to bringing these offences to a successful conclusion. If you have any information about these offences please call Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting serial 0021 of 07/01/2022, or preferably digital 101, East Staffs Facebook Page and message via messenger in total confidence. Thank you for your assistance.
