Tools worth $2500 were stolen from an address in Mosgiel yesterday, in the Kinmont Park area, the latest in a string of thefts from tradesmen in the area.
Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said yesterday the incident was being investigated.
On Monday, police said more than $16,000 worth of tools had been stolen from new-building sites in Mosgiel since the start of the month, prompting police to again remind tradies to secure their property.
There had been at least three burglaries since the start of the month in which tools were taken from unsecured building sites in Gladstone Road South, Owhiro Ave and Glengarry Court.
People living next to building sites were encouraged to report any suspicious activity, particularly as the nights got longer during the winter and builders finished work earlier.
