Police in South Cumbria are investigating a rural burglary where Â£1,300 worth of equipment has been stolen from a farm in Broughton-in-Furness.
The burglary occurred at around 10.35pm on the 14thÂ July.
Offenders approached an outbuilding and forced entry into it. Once inside they stole tools and accessories valued at around Â£1,300 collectively. The majority of the equipment stolen were Makita power tools.
Detective Inspector Amanda Sadler said:
â€œWe believe that thieves are targeting rural areas where expensive tools can be found around farms or in large sheds. Once stolen we believe thieves are selling the tools on. We ask anyone with information into the theft of these tools to get in touch.
â€œIf you are offered expensive power tools at a cheap price, please consider that these maybe stolen goods and report it to Police as handling stolen goods is an offence.â€
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police on 101 and ask to speak to an officer from South Cumbria CID.
