Officers are investigating the theft of four automatic guidance systems from locked tractors and various power tools from a farm in the Carnousie area near Turriff.

The incident occurred between 11 pm on Tuesday 26 March and 6 am on Wednesday 27 March 2019.

PC Ian Bain said

The ‘Trimble’ guidance systems and power tools stolen have a collective value of a low five-figure sum of money which is a great loss for any premises.

I would appeal to anyone with information or who witnessed anything unusual or suspicious in the area to contact police on 101 using reference number CF0073060319.

I would also urge farmers and rural residents to review their security. Simple measures can help prevent you becoming a victim of crime and help you if you do such as removing any valuables from vehicles and storing them safely, parking tractors or vehicles in a secure locked area if possible and using property marking kits.

If you would like further advice please phone 101 and ask to speak to a Crime Reduction Officer.

If you have information regarding the thefts please contact police or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to remain anonymous.

Farmers are reminded that many tractors can be opened with the same key and so they should ensure that further security measures are taken and that the tractors are kept in a locked environment whenever possible.
