A WINDOW was smashed as power tools were stolen from a van in Haddington.

The white Vauxhall Combo van was parked on Bearford Place when the driver’s window was smashed.

A DeWalt mitre saw and a DeWalt toolbox containing a cordless six-piece power tool kit, including a torch, circular saw, jigsaw, combi drill, hammer drill and associated batteries, were stolen from the van.

The incident happened some time between 8.30pm on Friday, November 27, and 8.40am the following day.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “If anyone remembers seeing or hearing anything suspicious at that time or has been offered these tools for sale, please contact Police on 101 quoting incident number 0883 of November 28.”

A number of tool thefts have taken place in East Lothian in recent weeks.

These included a theft of tools from a van in Haddington earlier in November and the theft of £10,000 of power tools from a construction site at Longniddry Bents No. 1 car park earlier this month.
