    Who did you tell you had all this gear in the Van, and were they on or near site?

    Seems a bit too opportunistic to me, maybe this 'someone' was lying in wait? :O

    Obviously stolen by someone in the trade - they knew the value and have probably already sold them down the pub.

    I am afraid I have to agree with Captain Leaky. it's someone who knows your habits and movements and the quality of your kit. Then they wait for the moment to take you.

    you have to admit to yourself that you were careless, but anyone who steals someones tools will not have luck with them.

    are you going to hate the world even more now? is some innocent shelf stacker going to get a kicking, a bit of road rage even?.
