Police have issued a warning following a spate of thefts from Ford Transit vans.

Since the start of April, there have been more than 20 reports of break-ins of this type of van in Bedfordshire. On each occasion no damage was done and it’s believed offenders may be using a device to bypass the lock system.

Unfortunately we believe offenders may be using a device to enter this model of van and we are working hard to investigate these offences and find those responsible. We’d also advise people to never keep tools or valuables in your vehicle overnight and to consider fitting additional security such as a deadlock or an alarm.”

The thefts have taken place across the county and all of them happened during the night.
