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.
