Burglars steal £1,000 of items from West Mersea home

£1,000 worth of tools have been stolen during a burglary in north-east Essex.


Thieves forced open a box in the back garden of a house on St Peter’s Road in West Mersea between Sunday, January 19 and Sunday, February 9 and stole approximately £1,000 worth of electronic power tools.

Anyone with any information in connection with this burglary is urged to contact investigating officers at the Neighbourhood Crime Team at Colchester police station on 101.



  • What a pity the information wasnt checked before printing. the value of the tools was in fact £3,000 not £1,000. The thief has absolutely no idea the stress that this particlar theft has caused.
