Power tools were stolen from three vans in Fenland after thieves cut holes next to locking mechanisms to gain access.
The offences took place in Teal Road and Feldale Place, both in Whittlesey, and High Road in Elm, overnight on November 3 into 4.
Police are now advising members of the public to not leave tools in their vehicles.
“Where possible, it is advised tools are not left in vehicles which are unoccupied as vehicles such as vans are commonly targeted by criminals,” said a Cambs Police spokesman.
“Particularly at the moment when more people might not be in work or working as often due to the current pandemic, people are urged to empty vans.”
