Shocking footage has been released to track down the two men who stole more than £2,000 worth of tools from a locked van.
The CCTV images show a man break into the white van on Thursday night around 10.30pm.
The van belongs to self-employed carpenter Tevis Knight and was parked on the driveway outside his St Michaels home.

Mr Knight, 50, only realised the majority of his toolkit had been stolen when he arrived at work the next morning.
His 26-year-old son, also called Tevis, said: "They took my dads whole livelihood. He now has to buy all new tools just to go back to work.
"It looked like they used a screwdriver on the front door handle which opens the central locking and then they just helped themselves.
VIDEO: This is the shocking CCTV footage showing the two men stealing the tools.
Mr Knight added: "We just really disappointed that someone would do this, particularly when his van was locked on his driveway and covered by CCTV. How much more secure can you get?
"Thank you to everyone who has already shared the video, we're really hoping someone recognises them .
"The images are quite clear and it looks like they were driving a silver Vauxhall Zafira.
"My dad is quite stressed out. He realises he will probably never get the tools back but he would like to help stop this from happening to someone else."
Police confirmed they are investigating a report of a theft from a motor vehicle in Grange Crescent, Tenterden.
A spokesman for the force said: "It is reported a number of work tools were taken. Enquiries are ongoing, which involves viewing potential CCTV footage."
