The white Ford Transit van, with the registration K80 NSA, was seen pulling across a drive on Bradway Road, in Bradway, on Thursday, December 12, at 11.50am.

Two men, both wearing high-visibility jackets and black woolly hats, with black scarves covering their faces, got out.

One kept watch while the other took ladders from the vehicle, which he put up against the front bay window before repositioning the CCTV camera, after which both men returned to the van which was driven off.

PCSO Kenneth Blake, of the Sheffield South West neighbourhood policing team, said: “A check of the vehicle number shows the plates were stolen recently in the Derbyshire area.

“Local residents are asked to be extra vigilant and should this vehicle be seen then they are to contact South Yorkshire Police asap giving location/occupants.”
