Police are appealing for information after a van, containing high value tools, was stolen in Mallusk on Sunday, October 16.

It is believed that the white Peugeot Partner van, registration number VJZ 6281, was stolen from a yard on the Mallusk Road at about 9pm. A dark coloured estate car may have been involved in the theft.

Constable Ryan Stewart said: “Thanks to the owner fitting a tracker to the van, it was recovered in the Dundalk area on Monday, October 17, however the tools have not been recovered. Some of the tools include a welder, a plasma cutter, two impact guns and a number of tool boxes.

“I would ask anyone who noticed the van, or any suspicious activity in the area, to contact Newtownabbey Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1379 of 16/10/16. Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
