A pensioner has had tools stolen from his house while stopping for lunch.
The man, in his 70s, was completing work on his roof at his home in Four Acres, Stevenage, on Wednesday, July 16.
Pausing for lunch at about 12.30pm, the man left his tools in a room connected to the side of the house.
When he returned an hour later, a black and silver Erbaur power drill and a blue Phillips 14in screwdriver had been taken.
PC Christina Debtuch, who is investigating, said: “This incident occurred in the middle of the day and so anyone acting unusually or suspiciously in the area may have stuck out in people’s minds.
You may also want to watch:
“If you remember seeing anything of this nature please contact me. I would also ask if anyone is offered the tools for sale, or knows of their whereabouts, that they contact me straight away.”
If you have information about the theft contact PC Debtuch on police non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
