TWO children's pedal cars were among a large number of items stolen in an overnight break in at a unit in Somerset.

Police after investigating the thefts from premises near Glastonbury in which a "significant quantity of tools and garage equipment" was also taken.

The incident happened in the Main Road area of Westhay some time between 11pm on Sunday, November 26, and 5am the following morning.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesperson said the offenders caused damage to security lights before breaking into the unit.

They then made off with Snap-on tools and equipment, including trolley jacks, hand tools, diagnostic computers, work lights and two limited edition Snap-on kids’ pedal cars similar to the one pictured.

It is believed the offenders would have had access to a van, or large vehicle, which they may have parked near the Main Road area, transporting the stolen goods across a field.

The spokesperson added: "We want to speak to anyone who saw a suspicious vehicle in the area, within the times and dates the offence was committed, as well as to anyone who has seen a large amount of Snap-on tools for sale, in particular the rare Snap-on kids’ pedal car.

"The pedal cars have white writing on the side and are black, with a silver front and brown leather seat.

"We would specifically ask residents in Westhay to check their doorbell and dashcam footage to see if they can help."

The spokesperson added that officers are also encouraging people to report all non-dwelling burglaries in the Mendip area so they can have a full picture of where offences are happening, which will help officers in the area effectively target their patrols.
