Andy Crisp, the Daventry District NHW Administrator, has sent through the following notice of a recent spate of van thefts:
The NHW Co-ordinator for Spratton has advised [23/11/17]:
In the early hours of yesterday morning there were two attempted van break-ins and one actual van break-in where items were stolen in the Gorse Road area of Spratton. All three incidents would seem to have taken place within a matter of minutes from about 2.15am and one resident, whose drive alarm was activated, actually saw two men running from their drive but they had absconded by the time the occupier went outside.
