A local tradesman is appealing for help tracking down a haul of tools stolen from his van.

Jerry MacGillicuddy’s vehicle was broken into overnight on January 16/17 on Saxon Road with Eileen Road, SE25 5EH.

Items stolen include  a hammer drill, Bosch battery 18v operated, three Hitachi drills, a Bosch multi tool, a blue reciprocating saw, a small Hitachi angle grinder, Makita jigsaw and a 4ft red magnetic Wickes level.

Jerry who runs maintenance company Just Ask J Ltd, said:  “It’s one thing to steal a van, but your tools are your livelihood. I’m a single parent, doing my best, but to steal my income. I’ve lost out on work over it, plus repairs to my van.”
