Stolen Items Seized During Rural Crime Team Operation

The Rural Crime Team recently worked with CanTrack Global Ltd to search an area of Shipston on Stour where they located a Kubota mini digger that had been stolen from the Nuneaton area.
During the search they also identifed various other stolen items including a hydraulic breaker, Ford UK Transit Dropside Lorry that was showing false number plates, a diesel bowser and a Swift Group Caravan.
Around £60,000 of stolen items were seized along with a Ford Transit suspected to be involved in the thefts.
As the search was conducted two males were arrested by Cambridgeshire Constabulary on suspicion of plant machinery theft and fraud. One was also wanted for failing to appear at court for other
matters. This male was detained overnight to court for the warrant and both are now subject of a multi-
force investigation into rural theft.
