During late evening patrols, PC King from the Rural Crime Team acted on some intelligence and with assistance from West Mercia Police Officers, searched a location just over our border near Bidford on Avon where a stolen Honda quad bike was recovered, taken from a farm just outside Stratford the previous night. Its owner was absolutely delighted and the bee keeping equipment on the back was still in tact.
The Rural Crime Team has since returned and made further recoveries of stolen Stihl power tools which is believed to have been stolen from a nearby farm the same night. 3 Yamaha Motor quads, KTM and Yamaha off road bikes and other tools are still outstanding.
The Rural Crime Team are continuing to work on these burglaries and are doing all that we can to protect our farmers vehicles, which are integral to their day to day work.
