“Thefts like these can be devastating for victims. Not only is the equipment expensive to buy and replace, but these mostly belong to farmers or family-run agricultural businesses and being without their equipment heavily disrupts their daily tasks of running their farms and their livelihoods.

“We are committed to working proactively to prevent and tackle incidents of rural crime and we would encourage anyone with concerns or information to get in touch with us on 101 or speak directly to local officers out and about in the area.

“Our investigation is ongoing and we would ask anyone with information about this incident to get in touch on 101, quoting incident 445 of 20 February 2022.”
