Mini tractor cut free
9:48am Friday 22nd March 2013 in Romsey
DETERMINED thieves smashed a CCTV camera in a bid to stop police tracing them after stealing agricultural equipment worth £5,500 from a farm at Lockerley.
Police say the orange Kubota mini tractor and Rotavator were stolen from an open barn in a field at Butt’s Green between 4pm last Friday and 10am on Monday.
Officers say the stolen equipment was chained to a steel-fixing in the concrete floor of the barn. Fence posts and wire were removed by the thieves as they made their getaway.
“We don’t know how they removed the tractor and Rotavator from the site, but it would have taken at least three people to move it,” said a police spokesman.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact PC Stephen Edwards at Romsey Police on 101.
