Power tools, plumbing equipment and cash were among various items stolen from three vans in Colney Heath overnight.

The first incident took place in Fellowes Lane, between 5pm last night and 6.40am this morning when thieves broke into a locked white Ford Transit van and stole power tools.

In a separate incident in nearby Admirals Close, offenders broke into another white Ford Transit van between 11pm last night and 5.45am this morning by forcing open the vehicle’s sliding doors.

Power tools and plumbing equipment were taken.

In a third and unrelated incident, a red Ford Transit van in Wistlea Crescent was broken into between 8.30pm last night and 8am this morning, with power tools and a small amount of cash taken.

Herts Police are not linking the three incidents at this point.
