Trimley: Reward offered to help catch tool thief
A �500 reward is being offered today to help catch a thief who stole tools from a shed at an empty property.
The unoccupied house in Kingsbury Road, Trimley St Mary, was broken into sometime between 5pm on Thursday, November 1 and 7.20am on Friday, November 2.
While nothing was taken from the house, a shed at the property was also broken into and tools – including an angle-grinder and disc-cutter – were stolen along with a digital radio.
Now the owner of the tools is offering a �500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the burglar and the return of the stolen items.
A police spokeswoman said officers were keen to trace a man, described as around 5ft 8ins tall, of stocky-ish build, wearing a hooded top and jeans who was seen getting into a two-tone twin cab truck, with a dark top and light coloured bottom, parked in Kingsbury Road around 9.15pm on the Thursday night.
