Caught on camera: Thief steals power tools in Lymm

THESE pictures show a thief stealing expensive power tools from a Lymm building company.

The intruder moves carefully around the store room at Hartwell Developments, Camsley Grange Farm, Camsley Lane during the break-in at 3.52am on Friday.

He uses his mobile phone to search for items to steal before picking up copper wire and cable.

Numerous power tools are also taken including a petrol stihl saw, nail gun and other equipment worth around £2,000.

Part way through the burglar realises he is being recorded and covers the camera with a glove.

Steve Higginson, who owns the business, had removed the tools from a van that day as he thought they would be safer in the store room.

He said: “It will be difficult to replace everything without a doubt, because of the cost.

“These are things used on a day to day basis.

“We will have to hire stuff which is a smaller cost compared to buying it.”
