We are appealing for witnesses after an abandoned van was located in Totton containing items stolen from recent burglaries.
Officers were called to Singleton Way on Wednesday, 8 February, after a tracking system in a recently stolen quad bike activated there.
On arrival, officers located a white Ford Transit van parked at the junction with Radleigh Gardens. Inside they found a stolen quad bike and a number of tools that have since been identified and returned to their owners.
The van has been identified as having been stolen in Dorset on 5 February.
The items inside are from the following incidents:
We have conducted a number of enquiries and are now asking the public for any information that may assist.
Perhaps you saw who parked the van on Singleton Way? Or you have dashcam or CCTV footage of a white transit van driving between these areas on the 7 February?
Sergeant Rob Ford said: “We would love to hear from anyone who thinks they might have seen this van, or has seen any suspicious behaviour around the two burglaries leading up to and on the night of the crimes.
“Our officers are working hard to crack down on these sorts of incidents and we will be continuing to patrol hotspot areas on our patch.
“We are pleased that we have been able to return these items to their owners, and it just goes to show the importance of noting any serial numbers or identifying marks on your valuable items.”
Anyone with information is asked to phone 101 with reference 44220104150.
