Police Recover Tools Following Sittingbourne Theft

Police Recover Tools Following Sittingbourne Theft

A suspected burglar has been arrested after a victim of crime provided key information to police soon after a theft in Sittingbourne.

Kent Police were called at 12.30pm on Tuesday (11th January) following a report that the window of a vehicle had been smashed in Gadby Road and power tools stolen.

Following some detective work of his own, the owner suspected the stolen tools were being kept in the Wentworth Drive area and called the police.

Officers were quick to respond and arrested a man in his twenties on suspicion of theft from a vehicle. A box of power tools was located and seized.

The man was further arrested in connection with the theft of two push bikes in December, as it was reported that the suspect had been advertising the stolen bikes for sale on social media.

The suspect, who is in his twenties, has been released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.
