Police are appealing for information after balaclava-clad burglars broke into a garden machinery store in Blakeney, Forest of Dean.
Four men armed with bats, who had travelled in two dark-coloured pick-up trucks, forced entry to Dean Mowers on High Street shortly before 2.30am on Wednesday (21 September).
It is estimated that around £10,000 worth of stock was stolen and damage was caused to the store.
Items taken include hedge trimmers, garden strimmers and chainsaws, which are mainly Stihl branded and bright orange.
Officers attended the scene but the offenders had fled. It is thought they turned right onto Cinderford Road, and that one of the vehicles was a black Mitsubishi.
Anyone who has any information which could assist the ongoing investigation, or anyone who has seen these items offered for sale, is asked to contact police online by completing the following form and quoting incident 34 of 21 September: www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
