Among the items stolen were: a CIG Gas Mig welder; Green drill; Karcher S4 pressure cleaner; Ozito sump pump; Ryobi 24 inch chain saw; Homelite 12-inch chain saw; 2 Dewalts drill batteries, yellow and black; Ozito Pressure pump; Ozito bilge pump; Makita 9-inch grinder; Ozito multi saw; a Tools Direct brush cutter, including petrol; and a Drop saw.

A LED backlight, the CCTV cameras (which were brand new and still in their box) and a pair of tin snips were also taken.

More than a dozen tools were taken.
