A sat nav system and laptop bag were stolen from a Transit van parked on Lydgate Lane on Thursday 28 July.
Thieves broke in to the van at around 00.30am. Upon discovering that the laptop bag only contained papers, they threw it into Lydgate Park and set the van on fire.
The following day, someone removed the van’s rear lights and drained the diesel from the vehicle. It is not known if these incidents were connected to the break-in and torching.
