Police warning after vans broken into in Lowestoft

POLICE investigations were continuing this week after thieves targeted motor vehicles in Lowestoft.

A large yellow coloured transformer, a blue power saw and three jig saws in plastic cases were stolen after a van parked at Chaukers Crescent was broken into.

The theft happened between 5pm last Thursday (November 25) and 7.45am on Friday (November 26).

'If you can help please call PC 1633 Thompson on 01986 835300.'

Police are also investigating after a wood and metal tool box was stolen from a van parked in Chiltern Crescent between 6pm last Thursday, and 8am on Friday.
