METAL thieves have struck at two building sites.
Lead worth £300 was among items stolen from a building site, on Braishfield Road, in Romsey.
Intruders used a grinder to cut a hole in a container storing copper pipes and took £700 worth of brass and copper plumbing fittings.
Also taken was a vacuum cleaner worth £800, a chasing tool for cutting wires, a cutting machine worth £500, and a drill battery valued at £70.
Anyone who witnessed the incident, between 5.30pm on Saturday (April 21) and 7am and the following Sunday should call PC James Griffiths at Romsey Police on 101.
Thieves scaled scaffolding to steal the lead around the windows of the buildings on Gardeners Lane, East Wellow, at around midday on Sunday (April 22).
A man, described as white, in his 20s to 30s, with short dark hair and wearing a blue Puffa jacket and blue jeans, was seen at the site. Anyone who saw anything or has information should call PC Rupert Murray-Twinn at Romsey Police, on 101.
