Police recover Farm equipment from Langport
On 20 August some high value trailers and other plant related equipment were stolen from a property in Langport. Avon and Somerset Police put out a message about the theft via the Farm Watch network. As a result of this they received a call on Monday 23 August about suspicious activity in the Tintinhull area. People were seen moving a trailer and fuel bowser. Police responded immediately. Officers attended the scene and a stolen fuel bowser and a further item of machinery were recovered.
The story did not end there. A further call was received on Wednesday 25 August. This time officers went to a site in Martock where further stolen items were located. As a result they were able to recover two tractors and another trailer.
Three men aged 23, 24 and 30, have arrested on suspicion of theft. They’ve been released under investigation so enquiries can continue.
Sgt Katie Maun, of the Somerton and Wincanton neighbourhood policing team, added: “Further items have been recovered which we believe may also have been stolen. We are releasing images of a Makita bag containing a variety of Makita power tools, with the initial’s ‘JC’ written on them. We hope this will identify the owners. If this property is yours, please call us.”
If you have information on the suspected stolen items please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5221191617.
