Two electric drills have been seized by Kent Police, and now officers want their owners to come forward and collect them.

The power tools, which may have belonged to someone who works in the building trade, are thought to be stolen goods.

Sgt Mike Ginsberg believes they may have come from the Higham ward area of North Tonbridge, where a spate of thefts from builders' vans occurred before Christmas.

Sgt Ginsberg, from the Neighbourhood Policing Team at Tonbridge Police Station, said: "These two drills are quite distinctive and one of them in particular is not your ten-a-penny DIY drill – it is likely to have belonged to someone in the trade.

"We had a number of vehicle break-ins in the local area but have tried contacting all the those victims and none has claimed these tools. Perhaps they belong to someone who never reported they were lost to police?

"Now, I hope that person or persons will come forward."

The larger drill is a blue and orange coloured MacAllister 1,500W SDS rotary hammer drill. The model number is COD1500WRH.

The smaller tool is a Hitachi cordless drill, model number 18DVC, with an EBM1830 battery pack. It is green and black and has three initials etched into the side which it is hoped the owner can reveal to police to prove it is theirs.

Sgt Ginsberg added: "We'd be delighted to reunite these items with their owners."

He can be contacted at Tonbridge Police Station by calling 101.
