Theft From Sainsbury’s Car Park

A blog reader has unfortunately had his drill stolen. He writes:
Today at 3pm whilst at Sainsbury’s, North Cheam my company van was broken into by 3 white males driving a dark blue Citroen (Picasso, I think). 
Thankfully, I scribbled the registration on a piece of paper which the Police now have after a 999 call, as it seems I got there just in time after they have jimmied the drivers door, pushed the van forward away from the adjacent park fence, then jimmied the back door. 
I returned shortly after this as they only managed to nick a Milwaukee Drill Kit that has the initials KK painted on every item. 
  • 1 Impact Driver
  • 1 Combi Drill
  • 3 Batteries
  • 1 Multiple Screw Kit 
Please keep your eyes and open for these scum bags and more importantly get them nicked!!
(FYI, Sainsbury’s North Cheam CCTV is something to be desired) First port of call for Police was Sainsbury’s CCTV, and yes you guessed it - it was out of action!! Let’s hope the CCTV at the lights operated by TFL are working cause he drove off with the boot open!!!
If you have any information please call the police on 101 or anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Update (Police update from the 17th Septemeber)

Here is the official police appeal about this incident:

Police are appealing for witnesses after a van was broken into whilst parked in the car park at Sainsbury’s at London Road, Sutton, on Friday 13th September between 14.45-14.55hrs. The driver had parked his van deliberately with its rear doors backed up to bushes opposite the main store entrance to reduce the chances of it being broken into. When returning to his vehicle after shopping in the store, the driver noticed his vehicle had been moved forward, its rear doors open and another vehicle parked next to it. He saw three suspects put an item into the other vehicle before speeding away. The driver’s door had been forced open and the vehicle pushed forward after the handbrake had been released. The rear doors had also been forced open. A Milwaukee power drill had been taken. The suspects were described as three white males all aged between 20-30. The suspect’s vehicle was described as a Citroen Xsara Picasso Desire. If you have any information about this incident, please contact Sutton Police station on 101 quoting ref no: 4008793/13.
