A number of tools were stolen from a van that was parked outside a house in Daventry on Monday night.
The Stuart Coe Carpentry Services’ van was broken into overnight between November 7 and 8 on Lang Farm.
Some items had been left in the vehicle due to the driver having a bad back and being unable to remove them.
The stolen items included a multitool, impact drill, planer, DAB radio, SDS drill, circular saw and a combi drill all by Makita. Also taken was a Hitachi second fit straight nailer, a Festool 2.6 set cordless drill, and a Trend 850 Watt router.
Anyone with information, or who may be offered suspicious items for sale, is asked to contact Northamptonshire Police by calling 101.
