POLICE have released a new image of two men they want to speak to in connection with the theft of a workman’s van, containing thousands of pounds of tools.

The white Mercedes Sprinter was parked outside the Kings Arms on High Street in Garstang when it was broken into and stolen.

Police are now renewing their appeal for information and have issued a CCTV image of two men captured in the area at the time of the offence who they need to trace.

The van contained more than £3,000 of tools and was spotted at a petrol station on the A6 at Churchtown around 15 minutes later before being driven away in the direction of Broughton.

PC Rachel Bibby, from Lancashire Police, said: “An investigation is under way but I would appeal to anybody that recognises any of the men in the CCTV or anyone with other information about this offence to come forward and contact us.

“These tools were the victim’s livelihood and we’re doing all we can to try and reunite him with his property.”

The theft happened at around 6.45am on February 4.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lancashire Police on 101 quoting log reference LC-20130205-0990.
