Thieves are targeting vans containing tools in them in Northamptonshire, according to police.
People are being asked to be on their guard against tool theft after three vans were broken into overnight on Monday and Tuesday this week.
In Yelvertoft, two vans were broken into in School Close and Wards Lane, and a number of tools were stolen. Another van was broken into in Watford Road, Crick, however, nothing was stolen.
Daventry Inspector Jon Lloyd said: “It seems the thieves were targeting vans that were likely to have tools in them. I would urge motorists, wherever possible, to remove all tools and other valuable items from their vehicles when they park, especially overnight.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who may have information about who is committing car crime and anyone who sees anything suspicious should call police on 101 or, if a crime is in progress, call 999. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
“Also, if anyone other than a reputable dealer tries to sell you cut-price tools then please call us. Remember to note descriptions of those involved and registration numbers.”
