Circumstances Attempted theft of a LandRover in Bradley area of north Hampshire,at about midday Wednesday 8th August 2018

Fortunately the vehicle was stopped by another farmer and the thief got out of the vehicle and into the white van and drove off towards Bradley Crossroads.

 Description The occupants of the white van are described as two men of eastern European appearance, 30’s, stubble on face medium build. Further description to the van is that It was at one time sign written with the letters MT & P or similar. The registration began with J and the accompanying letters may be similar to JSM

Request. A police request is that if anyone saw a vehicle as described above  or has CCTV in the area which may contain footage of the van and its occupants to please give PC Andy Reid  a call direct.

Straight forward advice.- with property like this invest in Tracker devices to be installed in your vehicles of any description. Do your own research and spend some money to protect your property. Modern Tracker devices can detect vehicle movement, alert you via your mobile or lap top device and follow your property as it is on the move. Why wait until your property has been stolen to wish you had invested in its security.

Theft of Land Rovers is very common. If you own one of any age or model protect it...NOW.

Appeal from Kent Police

We're hoping to reunite two trailers and a flat pack stable with their rightful owners.
The trailers and stable were among items recovered when officers searched a premises in #GreatChart on Thursday.

We've been able to identify a Mitsubishi Shogun, three motorbikes and two trailers at the site and enquiries into how they came to be there are ongoing. But we're still trying to identify the owners of two trailers and a stable and are appealing for the public’s help.
PC James Murrell said: ‘The trailers are both specialist #forestry trailers that would probably be used by professional #treesurgeons or #landscapers or in the forestry industry. ‘One is a green #Kellfri forestry #trailer with a crane. The other is an orange #Camon chipper trailer.
‘They are both expensive pieces of equipment and we are keen to reunite them with their rightful owners.
‘The wooden flat pack stable had yet to be built and was being stored in a pile,’ he added.
If you think the trailers or the stable could be yours, or you know who they might belong to, please call PC James Murrell on 01843 222289 quoting reference number 15-0633.
