Devon and Cornwall Police Rural Affairs Team is reminding farmers and small holders to "review their farm security as we move through the summer months".
This warning comes after two precision agricultural systems were stolen from an unattended tractor in Bideford.PC 5036 Whitting said: "They were a Trimble range unit and a Topcon. These will be expensive, key pieces of equipment for some who will struggle to function without them."Whilst we have had no further incidents like this at this time, there have been several in neighbouring counties."In order to protect your possessions, the police are advising: - Where possible, remove these items from tractors when not in use.- Ensure they are marked with a postcode or made unique to you.- Note down the make and serial number as this would greatly aid their recovery if stolen.- Report any suspicious activity or persons in the vicinity of your premises (Use 999 if an incident is ongoing)If you are offered any such items please contact police on 101 quoting the crime reference CR/0505/21.
