A van and a haul of tools were stolen during an overnight raid in Rothbury.
The incidents happened last night and police are appealing for the public’s help to trace those responsible.
A white Ford Transit containing scaffolding, ladders and tools was stolen from outside a house in The Pinfold. At another address in the Pinfold, thieves targeted another van and stole the registration plates.
At Woodlands, two vehicles were broken into and saws, drills and nail guns were stolen.
In Brewery Lane, two vans had their registration plates stolen, and in Addycombe Close a saw, chargers, batteries and tools were stolen from a vehicle.
Inspector Liz Hall said: “We are appealing to anyone living in Rothbury, particularly at the addresses where these thefts occurred, to get in touch with us if they saw anything at all which could help with our inquiries.
“Anyone with any concerns can be reassured that we are making extensive inquiries into these thefts and over the next few days additional patrols will be made by officers in the area who can be approached for advice.”
