We are appealing for witnesses after tools were stolen from a van in the Tesco car park in Flitwick.
The incident took place on Thursday (24 August) at around 1.30pm, when the owner returned to his vehicle to find four men stealing tools from the van.
After confronting the suspects, the victim was threatened with what was believed to be a crowbar.
All four men are described as wearing black balaclavas, baseball caps and gloves. They were witnessed leaving the scene in a white Kia Sportage.
Detective Sergeant Luke Williams from Bedfordshire Police’s Criminal Investigation Department said: “Interfering with the livelihood of individuals through robbery leaves many people at a loss – we want to reassure the public that crimes of this nature are not taken lightly.
“We are interested in knowing who these four offenders are as they may be linked to further investigations.
“If anyone was in the area and saw the incident unfold or knows who these offenders are please get in touch with us.”
