TWO men were arrested in Bracknell after a number of vans were broken into.

Police were called to the Whitegrove estate late on May 14 following reports of tools being stolen.

A prompt call from one of the victims resulted in two men being arrested shortly before midnight on Shakespeare Way.

Both of the men have since been charged with theft and going equipped to steal.

Various tools were located dumped in bushes on the estate and police are now attempting to find the owners.

If you own a van that was broken into and you have not yet reported it, call police on 101.

Investigating officers have requested anyone with dash-cam footage to come forward, quoting the reference number '43190144914'.

If you are a tradesman and need to leave your van parked and unattended on the roadside, the best way to protect your tools is to remove them and store them in a safe place.
