An officer from one our Safer Neighbourhood teams has released an image of a vehicle believed to have been involved in thefts from a South Derbyshire village.
Overnight, between Sunday, 28 July and the morning of Monday, 29 July, a horse box was stolen from a farm yard in Netherseal. It is thought that this was then used to load-up a stolen sit-on mower from another farm in the village.
The CCTV image shows a land cruiser type vehicle driving through the village towing a horse box at around 4.30 on the Monday morning, we would like to speak those in the vehicle in connection with the thefts.
PCSO Dave McMillan, from the Swadlincote Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We are keen to speak to the driver of this vehicle or anyone who saw anything suspicious in that area.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who recognises someone as owning this type of vehicle who has suddenly come in to possession of a horse box and sit-on mower or has been offered any of these items for sale.”
The horse box is an IFOR Williams horse trailer and the mower a Husqvarno sit-on.
