Ride-on mower stolen from Nottinghamshire cricket club

Police are appealing for information after a ride-on mower was stolen during a burglary at a cricket club.

Officers were called to Edwinstowe Cricket Club, in Forest Corner, after reports a garage next to the cricket pavilion had been broken into.

Offenders had moved a CCTV camera and cut a padlock to gain access to the garage around 11.30pm on Thursday (12 January) before taking the John Deere model 310 rotary mower.

The mower was under repair at the time so it is believed it must have been pulled along the road or taken away in a vehicle.

Police Constable Eden Sisson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“It is hugely disappointing to see a popular local sports club targeted by thieves in this way.

“We are determined to track down those responsible and would like to hear from anyone with any information.

“If you have any relevant CCTV, dashcam or doorbell footage please get in touch.

“Although the burglary took place late at night, we believe motorists could have seen suspicious activity around the area of the club or the mower being transported away from the scene.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 168 of 12 January 2024, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
