POLICE have traced the owners of two sets of stolen powertools through the Herald Express Swagbag column.
The items featured in today's Swagbag were also seized from a flat in the Wellswood area of Torquay as part of a police crackdown on the alleged handlers of stolen goods, codenamed Operation Brixton.
DC Simon Sherwood hopes these pictures will prompt yet more owners to come forward and help identify their stolen items
He said: "The property was seized at the end of October. The investigation into this property continues. Through Swagbag we have already had two positive responses in relation to other powertools from the same haul which were identified by their owners and will be returned to them. All of the items so far identified were stolen in Torquay."
Pictured today are a distinctive boxed red HILTI heavy duty hammer drill. It is unusual because the white HILTI name on the top of the box, which is usually white, has been coloured black.
The other item is a black and yellow DEWALT bag containing a DEWALT drill and a large amount of accessories.
Anyone with information about this or any other suspected stolen property is asked to contact DC Simon Sherwood on 01803 841614 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
