Police are investigating a number of chainsaw thefts after a number of businesses have been targeted.

Police say that entry was forced to the business premises via cutting through metal security bars thieves stole three Stihl, eight Husquarna model chainsaws and two Stihl hedge cutters, totalling over £6,000 worth of items.

PC Patrick Cantley, who is investigating the incident, said: “The owner of the business is devastated by this theft. The work he carries out in the local area is vitally important to ensuring the safety of people. This theft could have potentially had a massive impact on his business, fortunately for him, this was not the case but consequences may have been serious given the high winds experienced recently.

“I appeal to anyone who has any knowledge of this incident or any others in the area to get in contact. We are looking for information about the thefts, if anyone seen anything suspicious in the area at around the time of the incident on the 19th December. Also we are appealing for anyone who may have been offered a chain saw for sale to get in contact.
