Pavement thieves leave no stone unturned in Kilburn
Five locations across Camden have been target by crooks
THE hunt is on to find the cheeky crooks behind a spate of thefts of paving stones in Kilburn and surrounding areas.
In the last six weeks, the thieves have left no stone unturned by striking in five streets across Camden stealing 149 square meters of York paving worth �16,400.
Detectives are investigating the thefts and Camden Council are urging residents and businesses to look out for anyone selling paving stones under suspicious circumstances.
Cllr Sue Vincent, Cabinet Member for Environment, Camden Council said: “The streets of Camden belong to everyone and I’m appalled that rogue contractors have been stealing our paving stones.
“Not only do the thefts present a clear danger to pedestrians but in times of such financial pressures we cannot always make like for like repairs.
“I would urge anyone who doubts the legitimacy for works on our roads and pavements to contact the council so that the parasites preying on our paving can be brought to justice.”
