Appeal after tools stolen in Flitwick

We are appealing for witnesses after tools were stolen from a van in the Tesco car park in Flitwick.

The incident took place on Thursday (24 August) at around 1.30pm, when the owner returned to his vehicle to find four men stealing tools from the van.

After confronting the suspects, the victim was threatened with what was believed to be a crowbar.

All four men are described as wearing black balaclavas, baseball caps and gloves. They were witnessed leaving the scene in a white Kia Sportage.

Detective Sergeant Luke Williams said: “Interfering with the livelihood of individuals through robbery leaves many people at a loss – we want to reassure the public that crimes of this nature are not taken lightly.

“We are interested in knowing who these four offenders are as they may be linked to further investigations.

“If anyone was in the area and saw the incident unfold or knows who these offenders are please get in touch with us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or visit How to tell us about an existing case or report | Bedfordshire Police (beds.police.uk) quoting reference 40/45797/23.

You can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
