In the span of a week, there have been several burglaries on construction sites around Romerike. The thieves have broken in and stolen equipment.


At least seven construction sites in different places in Romerike have in a short period of time found that thieves have entered the building sites and stolen equipment, Romerike Blad reported Saturday.

A building site at Olavsgaard industrial park in Skedsmo, and another building site at Skårer in Lørenskog, both received visits from thieves who entered the construction sites, Friday night. The police believe the robberies may be linked.

“There have been a lot of similar cases in Romerike in recent days, and it is natural to think that they may be connected – but this is up to the investigators to figure out,” says operations manager Ronny Samuelsen to the newspaper.

According to the paper, similar burglars have occurred in several parts of Akershus and Østfold. Thieves have also visited Ski, Fredrikstad, Hobøl and Langhus. In addition, the police informed Oppland Arbeiderblad that last weekend in Skreia in Toten equipment was stolen in the amount of 200,000 kroner.
