Man arrested after stolen power tools found in nicked vehicle

Police in Bromley are hoping to reunite a number of stolen power tools with their rightful owners after a hunch led to an impressive seizure last week.

Officers were patrolling a part of the borough when their attention was drawn to a particular vehicle due a large number of visible tools on the rear seat.

Background checks into the vehicle confirmed that it had in fact been reported stolen following a burglary in Kent on June 7.

Investigations, although ongoing, linked the van to a local man who was arrested for theft and conspiracy to commit theft.

The vehicle has since been returned to its owner but the power tools still remain with the arresting officers.

Police are now asking potential owners who may recognise any of pictured tools to come forward or to call their local police station, quoting CAS number 3192/03JUL19.
