Police are hoping anyone who has been offered the chance to buy tools or building equipment at unusually low prices will come forward.
On Monday 21st July, between 12.30pm and 7am thieves broke into the building site of a KFC outlet at Wessex Gate Retail Park in Poole. They stole a number of building, carpentry and tiling tools. Some of the items included a petrol generator, extension cables, tile cutters and drills. Many of the items were marked with the company name, Adams Joinery, in black marker or laser marked with the company name, Dave White Contractors.
Police Constable Luke Davis, of Poole police, said: “I am keen to speak with anyone who may have seen two men on mountain bikes cycling around the site between 4.30pm and 5.30pm on Monday 21 July, or a man and woman driving around the site in a white Astra van, between 5.30pm and 7pm the same evening.”
Both cyclists are described as white men with tanned complexions, early to mid-twenties, of muscular build and around five feet ten inches tall.
The Astra van driver is described as a white man, between 40 and 55 years old, unshaven and with fair or grey hair covering his ears. The woman sat in the passenger seat and was wearing a white or ivory coloured top. She is described as white with light brown hair, of heavy build and between 40 and 55 years old.
