A spate of vehicle thefts is continuing after a Transit van was taken under cover of darkness overnight from Abronhill’s Lilac Avenue.

The white van disappeared overnight on Monday, September 19 and has not been recovered.

The heavy-duty tools of the owner’s trade were also stashed inside the van.

These included a lawnmower, a strimmer and a host of other gardening implements.

Abronhill has been heavily targeted by vehicle thefts this year, in what police say is part of a Lanarkshire-wide problem.

In addition to works vans, a number of luxury cars have been driven away, after thieves stole the car keys after breaking into their victim’s home.
