Police appeal for information after several items taken last Monday

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after more than £3,000 worth of power tools were stolen from a carpenter’s van in South Molton.

Several Makita power tools were taken in the early hours of Monday May 19, including drills, an electric planer and a router.

Other items such as a portable radio, plus a valuable Festool sander and DeWalt mitre saw, were also taken.

The saw, valued at over £750, had marks etched onto the rear left hand side of the machine and a blue power cable – unusual for this type of equipment.

A jigsaw, a number of drill bits and a Parkside multi-tool have also been taken.

Anyone with information should call the Police non-emergency number 101.
